Do you need to use a nebuliser at home?
People who suffer from lower airway respiratory problems like asthma and bronchiolitis rely on medication. It can help to treat symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and a build up of mucus. In some cases they may need a nebuliser to help them to take their medications.
Easier to breathe
Nebulisers can be an essential product for people who have to treat and manage these respiratory problems at home. They make it far easier to take the medication by changing it into a fine spray. It is easy to inhale this by wearing a mask over the nose and mouth or with a mouthpiece.
A lot of parents also find it easier to use a nebuliser if they have children or babies who need to take this kind of medication. It can be tricky to get them to take the medicine otherwise because of their age. Inhalers in particular can be very hard to use; even some adults can struggle with them. Nebulisers on the other hand are very simple.
Nebulisers are also more useful for emergency treatments. This is because they can deliver a higher dose of medication very easily if someone is really struggling to breathe. Paramedics and hospital staff tend to use them so it can also be really useful to have one at home. This is especially true for people with severe conditions and those who regularly suffer from infections.
There are many types of nebuliser to choose from. One choice is vibrating mesh. Here a combination of liquid and medication is ejected through a mesh to make a spray of small droplets that are easy to inhale. A second option is ultrasonic. These have a piezoelectric crystal that vibrates at a high frequency to produce the aerosol for the patient to inhale. A final option uses compressed air. These models are known as jet nebulisers.
