Nebulizers

If you have asthma, you are probably familiar with the word nebulizer, which refers to a special device that is usually prescribed for breathing therapy. The device uses the same types of medication as metered-dose inhalers (MDIs), which are the portable inhalers asthma patients tend to carry around with them. For some people, nebulizers might be easier to use than pocket-sized inhalers, especially young children and adults who suffer from severe asthma.

Nebulizers turns the liquid medicine into a mist that helps treat your asthma. Nebulizers are comprised of a base that holds an air compressor, a small container for the liquid medicine, and a tube that connects them together. You’ll find a mouthpiece or a mask above the medicine container which is what you’ll use to inhale the mist.

You can choose between a corded electric model or a battery-powered nebulizer. If you need something more powerful than a regular inhaler but still need easy transport, you can invest in a portable sized nebulizer that you can take with you on the go. On the other hand, if you’ll only be using your nebulizer at home then you can choose a larger one that plugs into the wall and sits on the table. While they may differ in size, both types of nebulizers function the same.
