People who are suffering from the diseases such as the asthma and other kind of the respiratory diseases in which it is difficult for them to breathe use the nebulizer. This is the equipment which is used in the medicine to transfer the medicines in to the lungs through inhaling. The medication aims to clear any or all kind of the blockages which is making the breathing difficult. The nebulisers in Australia make use of the oxygen gas or sometimes the compressed air which helps in the breaking of the suspensions so that it could be inhaled easily through the opening of the nebulizer.
What is the medical usage of the nebulizer?
A modern version of the nebulizers is the MDI which stands for the meter dosed inhalers. Although there are no researches which could deduce that which one of these is more effective because both of these are used to deliver the medicines in to the systems. Although it has been found out that the children with the acute asthmas are more effectively treated with the use of the MDIs rather than the nebulizers. One thing which has been found out about the nebulizers and has been considered an advantage is that these are able to deliver the large amount of the dosages at the faster rate which is required in some medical conditions as compared to the MDIs.
What are the types of the nebulizers?
Although there is not one type of the nebulizer and some of these nebulizers are more effective than the others. Some of these are discussed below:
These are the one which are most common kind of the nebulizers and are also referred to as the atomizers because these use the tubes and the compressor to compress the air or the oxygen which then converts the liquidized medicines to fine liquid particles which are then inhaled easily. Although the healthcare equipment are not easily portable because these are heavy and big and these also make noise when used. Therefore, to overcome this problem, some doctors are now prescribing the MDIs. These may not be very effective to use at home or carry around but can certainly be use in the hospitals where the large dosages are required in case of the emergencies.
These were first introduced in the year of the 1965 and make use of the ultrasonic waves and is portable as well. unlike the jet nebulizer which use the compressed air to produce aerosol this make use of the electronic oscillations to create the vibrations which result in the production of the aerosol.
