How to use a nebulizer?


Nebulizers are compact devices that vaporize liquid medications. You simply plug in a mouthpiece and sit with the machine while it monitors your breathing. Taking slow, deep breaths for 10 to 15 minutes allows the medicine to enter the lungs. This method of administering medicine involves little more than breathing it in.

Nebulizers aren't always necessary for people with asthma. An inhaler is a viable alternative and may be used instead. However, a nebulizer might make medication administration easier than using an inhaler. Inhaling medication with a nebulizer may be the best option. Whether or if a nebulizer is more convenient for you to use and the sort of medication you need to take can influence this decision.

The majority of nebulizers are compact and portable. In addition, nebulizers typically rely on air compressors to function. Another variety, the ultrasonic nebulizer, takes advantage of sound vibrations to create nebulae. This nebulizer model is more expensive than its quiet siblings.

Ensure the continued efficacy of your nebulizer by giving it the attention it deserves and cleaning it regularly. Nebulizers should be used in their manuals.


Here are the fundamentals of nebulizer operation:

  1. Clean your hands.
  2. Join the hose to a compressor.
  3. Put your medication in the medicine cup. Hold the mouthpiece straight up and down and shut the drug cup snugly to prevent spillage.
  4. Join the spout to the pill container.
  5. Please insert the mouthpiece into your mouth. Be sure your lips are firmly around the mouthpiece so the drug enters your lungs.
  6. If you want to use up the entire dose of medicine, you should only breathe through your mouth. It takes about 15 minutes to do this. If you need to, clip your nose so you can only breathe through your mouth. Young children benefit greatly from using a mask.
  7. When finished, please turn off the machine.
  8. Rinse the mouthpiece and medicine cup with water and let them dry completely before storing them.
