The LC Sprint reusable nebulizer and TREK S portable compressor from PARI Respiratory Equipment, Midlothian, Va, were used in the filming of the [removed]final episode[/removed] of NBC’s hit show "ER." The final episode of the 15-year series will air April 2 at 9 PM Eastern on NBC. Numerous stars are reprising roles for the final season of "ER," including George Clooney and Julianna Margulies, so the return of PARI products is fitting as PARI nebulizers have been used on the show to highlight treatments for a variety of respiratory illnesses.
"We are very pleased that NBC would use the final episode of ‘ER’ to once again highlight respiratory conditions and therapies. So many Americans suffer from a wide variety of respiratory illnesses and degenerative conditions that it makes sense that writers would use real-life examples and industry-leading nebulizers in their story lines," says Geoff Hunziker, president of PARI Respiratory Equipment in a release from the company.
The LC Sprint is the next generation nebulizer that has been used to deliver aerosol therapies for asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis. Combined with PARI’s TREK S, the LC Sprint delivers medication treatments averaging between 5 to 6 minutes. The PARI LC Sprint features breath-enhancement, which utilizes a patient’s unique breathing pattern to control and optimize medication delivery to the lungs by means of two valves on the nebulizer. PARI’s TREK S is a compact, portable compressor that is powered by a lithium ion battery or used with an AC adaptor.
