Nebulizers are devices that can convert liquid medicines into an aerosol droplet that can be easily inhaled through a mouthpiece or mask. A nebulizer is intended to be used for an inhaling medication for a respiratory disorder.
Nebulizers can be used to treat a disease of the upper, lower and middle tract:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease also known as (COPD)
- Bronchitis and Bronchitis Pneumonia
- Rhinitis also known as Common Cold
- Allergic Rhinitis also known as Hay Fever
- Chronic Rhino-sinusitis
If you have asthma, your doctor might prescribe a nebulizer as a treatment or a breathing therapy. This device delivers the same type of medication like a metered-dose inhaler but works very differently. A Nebulizer might be easy to use than an MDI, especially in children who aren’t old enough to properly use an inhaler.
What type of medication can be used with a nebulizer?
Most medications for the treatment of the upper, middle and lower airway is available on a liquid form and could be therefore used with a nebulizer. Nebulizers allow a mixing of different medications in a nebulizer chamber, so they can be inhaled at the same time for a higher convenience.
What are the benefits of using a nebulizer?
A nebulizing medication can have a greater clinical effect compared to a similar or larger dose that is delivered orally or by subcutaneous injection. One of the key benefits of inhalation is the fact that the medication is delivered directly into the respiratory tract.
What else should I know?
Discuss an asthma treatment plan with a doctor. A Nebulizer is an effective treatment for asthma but a machine is noisy and would usually require a power source and a treatment would take much longer. If you are getting relief from a pump inhaler, your doctor might prescribe a nebulizer for use only when a pump isn’t working for you. Having a good nebulizer on hand can be a good plan to avoid an emergency visit.
