NEBULIZING
Procedure for using a liquid nebulizer

Procedure for using a liquid nebulizer

(1) Add the liquid medicine to the cup attached to the device – medicine should be added at the time of usage and not before that. If taking more than one liquid medicine by nebulization, check if they can be mixed together or whether they should be taken separately.

(2) Close the cup and connect its tube to the air compressor

(3) Turn the compressor on -and when the compressed air reaches the nebulizer cup, it will vaporize the medicine, creating a mist.

(4) The mist is inhaled by the patient, through the mouthpiece or face mask

Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and breathe in slowly, taking deep breaths to inhale the vapor completely.

▲  At full inhalation, hold your breath for a 2-4 count to allow absorption in the lungs. If you are treating colds or sinus problems, you can also alternate breathing through your nose.

▲  Tap the cup regularly to ensure the right dispensation of medicine and don't remove the mask, until the medicine is used up completely.

▲  It will take about 10 to 20 minutes to finish nebulization depending on what type of medicinal is used.

▲  Nebulizing is generally carried out five times a day for best results.
