What is a nebulizer?

A nebulizer is a piece of medical equipment that a person with asthma or another respiratory condition can use to administer medication directly and quickly to the lungs.

A nebulizer turns liquid medicine into a very fine mist that a person can inhale through a face mask or mouthpiece. Taking medicine this way allows it to go straight into the lungs and the respiratory system where it is needed.

Nebulizers tend to be a little easier to use, in terms of delivering the medicine. However, a nebulizer may take up to 10 minutes to dispense the medication, and the user needs to sit still until they have inhaled all of it, which may be hard for a young child.

Types of nebulizers

There are three main types of nebulizers available:
  • 01

    Jet nebulizers

    Jet nebulizers make an aerosol out of medications using a compressed gas (like air). These are the most common type of nebulizers.
  • 02

    Ultrasonic nebulizers

    Ultrasonic nebulizers make an aerosol via high-frequency vibrations. These are more commonly used in hospitals and typically are not for personal use.
  • 03

    Mesh nebulizers

    Mesh nebulizers use a mesh cap with tiny holes that help dispense medication in a very efficient way. These nebulizers are newer and often more effective than jet nebulizers.
