Nebulizers And Compressors

Chronic respiratory diseases like asthma or emphysema makes it difficult for affected person to breath. This brings in the need for long-term care respiratory therapy systems called nebulizers. Nebulizers also serve people in emergency situations like those with a stroke, drowning, choking, heart attack or shock. Nebulizers basically are drug delivery devices that are used to administer medication in mist form directly into the respiratory tract. Nebulizers break the medication into small aerosol droplets that can be inhaled directly from the mouthpeice. (Aerosol is the mixture of liquid and gas).


Compressors are the systems that push the medicated mist into the lungs via a nebulizer system. These come as either stationary plug in devices or as battery powered devices for portable nebulizers. Nebulizer compressors are available in various types and designs to cater to the needs of people with specific respiratory needs like patients with asthma, bronchitis, or COPD.


We also carry mouth pieces and nebulizer masks, replacement filters, mouthpiece adapters and many other things required for a smooth respiratory therapy session.

Nebulizers can be classified into:

  • Table Top Nebulizer: This type of nebulizer system is designed for use on sturdy and still surfaces. They are generally less expensive and come with a longer warranty. Usually table top nebulizers are used for providing respiratory therapy to small children and infants.

  • Portable Nebulizers: These nebulizers are also called the hand-held nebulizers and provide the users with more freedom of movement as they operate while being held. These nebulizers are generally powered by a 12V DC auto adaptor or a battery. Portable nebulizers are lighter and smaller than tabletop nebulizers.

  • Piston-Pump Piston-Pump Compressor Nebulizers: These are also known as jet or aerosol nebulizers. These type of nebulizers generate air from piston powered compressors which passes through a medicated liquid to form a breathable mist. These type of nebulizers are very effective and less expensive as compared to the ultrasonic nebulizers but are a little noisy.

  • Ultrasonic Ultrasonic Nebulizers: These type of nebulizers use high frequency sound vibrations to turn the medication into a breathable mist form. These type of nebulizers are silent and deliver medication quickly. These type of nebulizers are often recommended to patients with cystic fibrosis. For eg. the Mabis DMI MiniBreeze Ultrasonic Nebulizer that delivers medication in 5 minutes or less with minimum wastage.
