Frequently Asked Questions
At the heart of Flyp is a stainless-steel disk the size of a dime — and half the thickness of a human hair. It has 1,000 4-micron holes that vibrate 110,000 times per second. As your liquid medication is pulled through the holes, it is converted into an inhalable aerosol.
Be sure to talk with your doctor. Flyp is a general purpose nebulizer and may be used to treat asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and other respiratory conditions commonly treated with nebulized medication.
With metered-dose inhalers, as little as 10% of your medication may reach your bronchioles — even under medical supervision. That's because you're asked to depress the unit's cartridge, then inhale at precisely the right time. Which, needless to say, can be very tricky. But with Flyp, 88% of albuterol and 90% of ipratropium bromide may reach your lungs' bronchioles. Without any complex maneuvers. Simply fill, click, and breathe.

Flyp has a lithium-ion battery, and it's rechargeable via a USB port. For you, that means the convenience of numerous treatments per charge and no more expensive disposable batteries.
Flyp's medication reservoir has an internal volume of 6ml.
Flyp delivers a standard, 3 ml dose of medication in about 7 minutes.
Flyp has been FDA-cleared for use with any medication intended for a general-purpose nebulizer, such as albuterol, ipratropium bromide, cromolyn sodium, and budesonide, in addition to other medications.
Flyp should not be used with hypertonic saline (>0.9%) or medications that are indicated for use only with specific delivery devices.
Once fully charged, Flyp is capable of delivering in the range of 15-20 treatments and cleaning cycles.
Remember to power off the device after your treatment by pressing the blue power button once.
It's not recommended. We suggest filling Flyp with medication immediately prior to use. There may be factors that preclude preloading, such as the temperature stability of your medication. The device also has a small vent pinhole in the reservoir to accomodate proper aerosol flow - the device should be held upright when filled.
Cleaning Flyp is simple. Just fill the HypersoniQ Cartridge with distilled or bottled water, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds until both the yellow and blue light illuminate, and run for at least 60 seconds. Shake out and air dry the cartridge after cleaning.
Once per week we recommend a deep cleaning using distilled white vinegar. Just follow the instructions above, substituting a bit of white vinegar for the distilled or bottled water. Then rinse the disk on both sides under hot running water and set aside to air dry.
To clean the exterior of the device, wipe with a lint free cloth. The mouthpiece can be cleaned in a solution of water and mild dish soap.
Flyp may be reimbursable under HCPCS codes E0574 or E0570 (with a GL modifier). This depends on your insurance provider, and we do not bill insurance directly. Please consult your provider for details related to your specific health plan.
