Nebulizer

Nebulizers are designed to provide quick relief from respiratory illnesses by delivering medication to the lungs in a mist form. They are found in certain cases to be more effective than metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) and used most commonly in the treatment of asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and other respiratory ailments. A nebulizer system includes a nebulizer device or medicine cup, a compressor, tubing, mouthpiece and tubing connectors. The nebulizer cup contains the liquid medication into which the compressor pumps air through the tubing to aerosolize the medicine. And buying the right product is key to a complete solution.

Both types are clinically effective and available in portable and desktop versions. Difference lies in the features.

Piston Pump Compressor Nebulizer

The piston pump compressor is a more common type and uses a piston-powered compressor to deliver air by vaporizing the liquid medicine droplets. It is noisy as compared to ultrasonic nebulizer but less expensive. This type is quite popular with medical facilities.

Ultrasonic Nebulizers

Ultrasonic nebulizers, also known as mesh nebulizers, are quiet and generally used more during the treatment of cystic fibrosis. They employ high frequency ultrasonic or sound waves to convert the liquid medication into a breathable mist. The delivery of medication is faster with the aerosol particles being tinier and consistent in size.
