7 Best Nebulizer Masks for Effective Aerosol Treatment

7 Best Nebulizer Masks for Effective Aerosol Treatment
HPFY Staff Writer

A breathing disorder often requires medications such as albuterol, budesonide formoterol, or cromolyn sodium to help facilitate easier breathing. These prescription medicines must be used with a nebulizer to turn the liquid medication into an inhalable mist. Obviously, the efficacy of these treatments depends upon user compliance and the use of a suitable nebulizer mask. With the overwhelming choices available, how do you choose the one that is right for you?  

How Nebulizers Work  

Let's face it: in order to live, we need to breathe. In fact, the more we breathe, the better (a slight overstatement). Allergies, COPD, asthma, or other breathing disorders may make breathing difficult and require prescription drugs to open the airways. Many of these meds must be atomized from a liquid into an inhalable mist. This is where the nebulizer machine comes in. Even though your doctor may also prescribe a rescue inhaler, a nebulizer is a completely different device and comprised of several parts: 

Things To Consider While Choosing A Face Mask For Nebulizer

It is at the mouthpiece or mask that the user inhales atomized liquid prescription medicine. The right mask can make therapy sessions shorter and more effective. There are a few factors to consider when searching for a nebulizer mask:  

  • Is the mask for an adult or pediatric patient?  
  • Do you need a portable or a tabletop unit?  
  • What type of nebulizer are you looking for? (vibrating mesh, ultrasonic, atomizer, etc.)  
  • How much noise does the nebulizer make?  
  • How fast is medication delivered?  

The answers to some of these questions depend on the patient's lifestyle. However, answering them honestly also means that therapy sessions can be quick and efficient and can make even the most stubborn patient compliant. 

7 Best Nebulizer Masks To Enhance Your Respiratory Care

The key to any therapy is patient compliance, and respiratory therapy is no different. Making each session efficient means finding the right equipment, which leads us to our list of the top 7 nebulizer masks:
