Procedure and benefits for using a liquid nebulizer

Nebulizing Medicine

–For lungs, bronchial tract, sinuses, throat / IV alternative

Benefits of using a Nebulizer

A nebulizer facilitates a fast and effective absorption of medicine - This is achieved by breaking down the liquid medicine into very fine particles, which is inhaled by the patient.

Medicine applied through a nebulizer is ideal for direct contact treatment to the lungs, bronchial tract, sinuses and throat – the medicine and moisture is nebulized directly onto these tissues, where it is locally absorbed by tissue cells.

This method of delivery to the tracheobronchial tree, also very effectively delivers medicine into the blood stream - and thus systemically into the rest of the body. Almost as effective as an IV, it reaches the blood stream via the rich network of blood vessels in the lungs.

Nebulization bypasses the stomach and liver – enabling a large percentage of the active ingredient to reach target tissues.

Particularly used to treat asthma, lung cancer, emphysema, respiratory infections (E.g. pneumonia, tuberculosis, influenza), chemical poisoning - and actually can systemically treat any problem requiring the administration of a medicinal.

Which type of nebulizer to use?

Several devices are available to create the drug aerosol particles - including jet nebulizers, ultrasonic nebulizers, metered-dose inhalers, and dry powder inhalers, through which particles can reach the upper and lower respiratory tracts and be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. Studies show that the device used really doesn't matter, as long as it's used properly.

–   Frequently a more convenient method of drug delivery

–    Especially helpful to treat infants, children and intensive care patients – who are generally unable to swallow pills;

–   Quick onset of action

–   Low incidence of systemic adverse effects - Side effects wear off quickly but can include racing pulse, tremors, nausea and insomnia. Nebulizer asthma treatments can also raise blood pressure and aggravate glaucoma.
