DeVilbiss Healthcare is a top leader in the design, manufacture, for respiratory medical oxygen products that address the respiratory needs of patients in institutional and homecare settings. Dr. Allen DeVilbiss invented the first atomizer in the late 1880’s in order to help his patients breathe more freely. Throughout the decades, DeVilbiss has led the way in developing products that make breathing easier for millions of patients worldwide.
Back in 1888, Dr. Allen DeVilbiss was fed up when care of his patients was hampered because of the lack of all but the crudest of medical instruments. He wasn’t about to give up.
In order to help his patients breathe more freely,Dr. Allen DeVilbisstried harder, worked smarter and became an innovator – dedicated to the quality of design and its impact on the quality of life.
Dr. DeVilbiss would tinker around in his backyard woodshed until just the right tool was perfected. And over a century ago, he developed the first spray atomizer by combining a rubber bulb, a piece of metal tubing cut from a discarded surgical instrument, and the base from an oil can. He was looking for an alternative to swabbing goose grease and Vaseline on the throats and in the nasal passages of cold sufferers. He held the atomizer over a flame to melt the semisolid which he then sprayed in mist form directly on the affected areas.
Dr. DeVilbiss took his invention to several leading medical supply manufacturing companies, but none were interested. In 1888, he founded DeVilbiss Manufacturing for the sole purpose of producing this atomizer. Since that time, DeVilbiss has led the way in developing products that make breathing easier for millions of people.
His first invention, the DeVilbiss Pulmo-Aide nebulizer is still the most prescribed item in it's class!
Through the years, DeVilbiss has pioneered many advancements in medical equipment technology. In 1964 they produced ultrasonic Nebulizers, as well as Vacu-Aide compact Suction Units.
