What Does a Nebulizer Treatment Do?
A nebulizer is a small piece of medical equipment that covers a person’s mouth and nose. It turns liquid medicines into an ultra-fine mist that is easily inhaled. Nebulizer treatment may be appropriate for patients with respiratory conditions like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as pediatric patients who have difficulty using an asthma inhaler or taking other forms of medication for the flu, allergies, or bronchitis.
The inhalable medicine produced by a nebulizer can be especially effective, as it dissipates into the lungs faster than medicine in a capsule or pill form. This means faster relief for sufferers of asthma and other respiratory conditions and less time coping with bothersome symptoms. Nebulizer treatment is simple and typically involves wearing the mask-like device over the mouth and nose for about five to 10 minutes.
