Selecting the correct Nebulizer for you:
A Nebulizer is a machine that converts an numbers of specialized medications from a liquid to a particle mist (aerosol mist) that can then be easily inhaled into a patients lungs. Its purpose is similar to that of an asthma inhaler, and often times it is used as an alternative to a metered dose inhaler (MDI).In general those who require a Nebulizer for treatment are those who can not use an inhaler effectively and thus do not get the most from their respiratory medication. Due to the difficulty of using an MDI effectively, or upon a doctors recommendation, many people decide to use a Nebulizer system, especially for children or older adults.
