Travel Nebulizers – The Perfect Companion

Travel Nebulizers – The Perfect Companion
Taikhum Sadiq

Sometimes you need a piece of medical equipment that you can carry with you while you travel. The environment today has made it difficult today for people with respiratory problems to live carefree in the open. Every time you travel you have to carry a nebulizer with you to be on the safer side. Obviously, it is difficult to carry the one that you use at home with you as it takes up a lot of space and also requires a place to be set up. This is where technology today has helped develop nebulizers that are not only compact in size but also lightweight. They can be carried wherever you go, so that using a nebulizer outdoors becomes hassle free.

Parts of a Travel Nebulizer

There are three basic components or parts of a travel nebulizer that help make it portable.

  • A system to convert the drug into mist
  • A nebulizer cup to hold the medication
  • A mouth piece to inhale the drug
  • They are all compact in size as compared to a table top nebulizer with the converter, the cup, and the mouth piece attached to one single compact unit.

Types of Travel Nebulizers

Just like normal nebulizers, travel nebulizers also come in the three basic types:

Ultrasonic - Where the drug is converted into mist using ultrasonic waves.

Jet - Also known as atomizers. Compressed air or oxygen is passed through the liquid medication to convert it into mist.

Vibrating Mesh - A mesh vibrates above the liquid causing the liquid to turn to mist and escape through the holes into the mouth piece.

How to Maintain a Travel Nebulizer?

One has to follow a few basic steps to make sure that the nebulizer keeps working in pristine condition.

  1. Clean the parts of the nebulizer according to the manufacturers manual. Make sure there is no settlement of dust on either parts
  2. If one is using a disposable mask, then it should be discarded after its stipulated uses, which are written on the manufacturers manual
  3. Change the filter regularly to avoid any contamination
  4. Ensure that there are no cracks or leaks in the machine
  5. Keep extra masks and filter with you so that you don’t end up in an emergency situation
