MyPurMist instantly puts the soothing power of steam directly in your hands
MyPurMist provides soothing hot steam on demand. MyPurMist is ready when you are. Just push the ON button for instant steam. No preparation, no waiting, no cleanup! The directed humidification (vapor) of MyPurMist brings warmth into the sinuses which thins mucus and makes breathing easier. The moisture in the mist helps to relieve symptoms by soothing irritated tissues in the nose and throat, calming coughs and reducing dryness. It is a very relaxing experience.
MyPurMist is effective for you and your children and because it disinfects (99.9999% germ free) and has no risk of scalding, you know it is safe. These benefits are made possible by the Capillary Force Vaporizer device inside. This patented technology was originally developed for critical care patients on ventilators in hospitals. Now it is available to you and your family at home or on the go.
MyPurMist can be used anytime for any length of time. A full water reservoir provides 25 minutes of use. Doctors and medical institutions recommend use of steam 2-4 times a day for symptomatic relief. The device cleans itself for 10 minutes after you turn the power off or when it is time to refill. The mist temperature is easily adjustable between warm and warmer settings, never hot. Use it as often as you like, no additives are needed, it is 100% natural.
Respiratory Therapists Shows Why MyPurMist is Better
MyPurMist Makes Steam Therapy a Reality
Medical evidence and media attention continues to mount regarding the dangers of OTC medications including reports of deaths, overdoses, and serious medical complications for children as well as adults.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
While room humidifiers help those suffering from dryness, they do little to relieve cold and flu symptoms because they do not deliver heat and water vapor directly to the sinuses. Not only do they not provide effective sinus relief, but warm-mist humidifiers can scald you or your children, while cool-mist humidifiers can transmit germs.
Seeing a need for a better alternative, a group of engineers and doctors decided to develop a product that provided effective sinus therapy. Their goal was to develop a way to provide directed humidification instantly that was easy to use and hassle free. In addition, to provide steam that would always be sterile (germ-free) with very small droplets so that it is delivered effectively deep into your sinuses, mouth, throat and lungs.
Borrowing from technology used with intensive care patients on mechanical breathing machines, they addressed a major concern, which was how to eliminate germs so that the vapor was disinfected (99.9999% germ-free). The heart of MyPurMist was created which was the beginning of instant directed humidification provided safely anywhere at anytime.
After years of development and product refinements based on feedback from doctors, parents, and those suffering from various sinus and other respiratory conditions, the MyPurMist device was complete. So now you can be sure that you and your children will receive safe, soothing, and effective sinus therapy.
