What Exactly is Aerosol Therapy?
A nebulizer is a device used to administer medication in the form of a mist inhaled into the lungs. Nebulizers are commonly used for treatment of COPD, Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Asthma and other respiratory diseases.
The common technical principle for all nebulizers is to use oxygen, compressed air or ultrasonic power as a means to break up medical solutions/suspensions into small aerosol droplets, for direct inhalation from the mouthpiece of the device. It enables patients to breathe it deeply in their airways where it is deposited. The aerosol treatments help you to breathe easier and more effectively by relieving congestion and opening the air passages.
