Medical inspection of the inhaler set called the Saltpipe
The inspection of the instrument requested by: B.B. System Kereskedelmi és Szolgáltató Kft.
(B.B. System Ltd. For Commerce and Services )
1146 Budapest, Francia út 57/c. (repr.: Békefi Imre)
The date of arrival of the instrument to our institute: 01. 09. 2002.
Description of the instrument: A ceramic container, filled with a mixture of special salt crystals and minerals
Application of the instrument: Setting it in the way of the inhaled air it helps the easier penetrability of the
upper respiratory tructs with a special inhaling opportunity
The basics of the functioning of the instrument:
Inhalation is a special method for the local treatment of respiratory illnesses. The advantages of the
inhalational method are:
- Local effect
- Higher salt concentration in the upper tructs
- Fast results
- The systematic effect is lower than in case of medication implied orally or injected
- The instrument employs only fully natural resources
The obtainable physiological effects are:
- Eventually: bronchospasmolysis
- In case of special material (minerals) antiphlogisticus effect
Indications of the application:
For the chronic illnesses of respiratory tructs (asthma, bronchiale), and for different forms of allergic rhinitis
In case of long term application of the set the vital capacity intensifies and subjectively, it provides an improved
general state of health
For the proper way of application the user must be trained and the process must be controlled, monitored later
With the remission of the patien's condition an individual dose must be defined with other expression: the
duration of application must be determined.
The hypocamnia, caused by the forced - too hard - inhalation must be avoided so the aquirement of the proper
technique is essential.
In order to avoid contamination, and in order to keep the instrument clean, only one patient should use one
During the application of the instrument we did not change the dosage of the patients.
The voluntarily involved patients we randomly divided into the "treatment" and the "control" groups. The
"treatment" patients used the instument several times a day for a determined period of time. Weekly and after
two months we examined the patients - with attention to iron-, and vitalcapacity.
Observations:The application of the Saltpipe is effective even in case of chronic upper respiratory illnesses, but
in these cases there was a need for medicinary supplementation also.
In case of the chronic illnesses, the patients reported about a subjectively easier breathing and inspirational
experiences, which was officially confirmed by objective vitalcapacity measurements.
Based on the above mentioned statements, the outcome of the adjuvant application of the instrument has
proven to be EFFECTIVE in many of the cases.
During the test period no side effects have been observed.
I suggest the application of the "Saltpipe" instrument as a complementive, supportive method with the
It must be distributed with a suitably informative and ethic description for users, which does not deceive the
user and does not make him or her abandon the previously used traditional medicaments and treatment.

Dr. Ferenc Pátz: Pulmonologist Reports on Clinical trial on children age between 3-16 years
Dr. Ferenc Pátz
Groups of patients consisting of 7 boys and 3 girls which :
6 Asthma bronchiale
2 Sinusitis maxillaris
2 Laryngitis subglottica
The youngest child: 3 years old
The eldest: 16 years old
Average: 9 years
Average: 6 weeks. The longest: 2 months period. The shortest: 4 weeks period
The product is catching the attention of both the children and the parents with its nice looks, especially with
the latest elephant design, which does not give the impresson of a medicament.
The description should be attached in the form of a little brochure, the method of application should be
described in a more detailed, pointed, highlighted way /introduction, "what to do-s", and the importance of the
daily, regular usage/.
Because of the relatively short testing period, we could draw only a few conclusions.
We received indisputably positive feedbacks from both of the patients suffering from recitive sinusitis. As a
result of the application of the set, in the first 2-3 weeks the nasal discharge intensified, later the intensity of
the mornig and evening coughings decreased.
In case of one of our two patients suffering from the illness of pseudo-croup, we did not experience any
significant changes, the "barking-like" coughing did not emerge less frequently, its progress was similar to the
previous way. There wasn't much of a chance for the good outcome anyway, because of the conditions created
by the possibility of virus infection. In the other case, the patient did not have coughing seizures in the testing
period, but it might be a coincidence, because of the short period (again) we cannot give a "clear-cut", certain
In case of our asthmatic patients (who were represented in a greater number) we would have also needed
longer time for drawing more reliable conclusions. Since at wintertime the chance of infection is greater and
the existance of allergens is not significant, these circumstances also influenced the effects of the instument.
In two cases, the parents experienced that the relief from the asthmatic seizures come sooner and the
torturing coughing ended faster.
In two cases the frequency of seizures decreased and it the last two cases we did not observe any significant
Dr. Valéria Burzuk: Clinical trial on people suffering on severe respiratory illnesses: Chronic
Bronchitis, COPD, Asthmatic Bronchiale
Dr. Valéria Burzuk
Notices about the experiences in connection with the Saltpipe used in the case of 10 patients suffering from
Chronic Bronchitis, COPD and Asthma Brochiales:
10 patients were using the Saltpipe in the period starting in October 2002, finishing in February 2003, for 2-3
months of duration.
These patients were suffering from respiratory illnesses; 3 of them suffered from chronic bronchitis, 7 of them
from asthma bronchiales: 2 of this 7 people had severe bronchitis and COPD.
4 patients out of the 10 were females and 6 of them were males.
2 patient between the age of 50 & 55, 3 between the age 55 & 60, 2 of them were between 60 & 65, and only
one of the patients was above 70.
Out of these 10 patients 6 suffers from heart diseases, which aggrevated the applicability of antispasmiodic
sprays - for the bronchial tubes - because of the side effects which exert the functioning of the heart.
I was trying to choose patients whose illness was severe (chronic bronchitis, COPD, and/or ashtma bronchiale).
The experiences of the patients show that the Saltpipe helps to dissolve sediments, helps in the process of
discharge and doing so, easens their breathing.
As a doctor, I found the Saltpipe a very effective complementary tool in the therapy of patients with respiratory
We can almost equalize the effects of the mineral-filled air inhaled through the Saltpipe with the effects of the
salt caverns (apart from the fact that the temperature of air inhaled through the Saltpipe is identical with body
temperature), further more, it is more moderate from a financial point of view than the expenses of salt cavern
therapies. As a summery I would like to conclude the followings:
The secretion-discharge is easier and so, the breathing of the patient becomes more relief. I also observed that
the speed of the air-stream in the small bronchial tubes accelerated which results in an easier breathing.
I find the application fo the Saltpipe indisputably beneficial.
I owe you my gratitude - also in the name of my patients - for the Saltpipe.
