Asthma nebulizers are one of the most effective devices for asthma treatment and an effective way for those with asthma to get relief. A nebulizer is a device that changes medication from liquid to a fine mist in order for it to be more easily inhaled into the lungs. Asthma nebulizers are particularly effective in delivering asthma medications to infants and small children and also to anyone who has difficulty using an asthma inhaler. Nebulizer therapy is often called a “breathing treatment” or “respiratory therapy.” A variety of medications for immediate relief and maintenance of asthma symptoms are available for use with the nebulizer.
Asthma nebulizers come in both home and portable models. Home nebulizers are usually larger and have to be plugged in to an electrical outlet, while portable asthma nebulizers run on batteries, either disposable or rechargeable, and may also be plugged into a car’s cigarette lighter. Portable units are usually a more compact size and come with a carrying/storage case, so that they can be used whenever and wherever you need them.
The most popular way for children with asthma to get their medications is through a pediatric asthma nebulizer. The child will usually get the drug by breathing it in through either a facemask or mouthpiece. These breathing techniques usually take between 10-15 minutes and are given several times a day. Pediatric asthma nebulizers often come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors to make them fun and exciting for your child.
