About nebulisation

Selection of the nebulisation method depending on the patient’s needs

Due to the selection of an appropriate spraying nozzle, the size of mist droplets may be adjusted to individual needs. The size of drug-containing aerosol particles determines the place in the respiratory tract where they are to work. Particles size of 7-15 µm enter the bronchi, those of 3-6 µm enter the bronchioli, and the smallest ones, 1-2 µm reach the alveoli. Advantages of nebulisation

  1. No need for inhalatory-exhalatory coordination. Drugs may be administered to non-cooperating patients
  2. A nebuliser is easy to operate
  3. Possible selection of an individual dose and the type of drug according to the needs of a given patient
  4. Nebulisation may be performed in the ER, in an ambulance, at the a doctor’s and at the patient’s home
  5. No contraindications (unless an allergic reaction to a drug develops)
  6. The drug is administered directly to the site of its action, with no negative impact on the gastrointestinal system

Other uses of a nebuliser

Nebulisation is a method used not only in the therapy of respiratory problems. Nebulisation is an innovative, safer and easier method for the application of all kinds of drugs. Due to the aerosol form of a drug, adverse effects may be avoided, particularly those concerning the gastrointestinal system. It is also a great alternative for those drugs that are applied by injection. For that reason, when talking to a doctor, it is worth asking about the possibility of prescribing the drug in a form adapted for nebulisation.

How should nebulisation be performed in the correct way?

  1. A nebuliser should be selected based on individual needs
  2. The face mask should fit
  3. A mouthpiece should be used for children
  4. Breathing frequency should be normal
  5. Nebulisaton should not be stopped or interrupted before the end of the procedure
  6. Do not use drugs that are not adapted to nebulisation
