Nebulising

is a type of inhaler therapy that converts liquid medicine into a fine mist that is easily inhaled. It is a common treatment for asthma and other types of respiratory problems.

 

 

 

 

Nebulisers

are often used by infants, children, people with severe asthma, or anyone else who may have trouble using other asthma treatments. It is a favoured asthma treatment because it delivers the medication directly, so they are more effectively absorbed.

A nebuliser machine is also known as a “breathing treatment” or “breathing therapy.” A nebuliser can deliver both long-acting and short-acting asthma medications.

A nebuliser machine uses pressurized oxygen or air – and in some cases an ultrasonic machine – to deliver medicine through a tube and face mask.

A typical nebuliser machine will have a nebuliser cup, mask, medication, compressor tubing, and a compressor.

Nebulisers use oxygencompressed air or ultrasonic power to break up medical solutions and suspensions into small aerosol droplets that can be directly inhaled from the mouthpiece of the device. The definition of an aerosol is a "mixture of gas and liquid particles," and the best example of a naturally occurring aerosol is mist, formed when small vaporized water particles mixed with hot ambient air are cooled down and condense into a fine cloud of visible airborne water droplets.
