There are various Nebulizer sizes that are available these days, depending on the types, brands and basic functions. All these nebulizer sizes are used in the field of medicine to administer medication to the patient in the form of mist that they have to inhale into the lungs.
The nebulizer sizes will also depend on the attachments that the device contains. This equipment is commonly used to treat different respiratory diseases, like COPD, cystic fibrosis and asthma. With its efficiency, different nebulizer sizes and advanced kinds of inhalers have taken over similar devices, such as vaporizers and combustible smoking devices.
Most types of nebulizers use compressed air, oxygen or ultrasonic power. Any of these components can help in breaking up medical suspensions and solutions to create little aerosol droplets. After achieving such state, this can then be directly inhaled by the patient through the mouthpiece that the device comes with.
The aerosol is the outcome when particle combines with gas, such as mist. This combination goes through the condensation process when the air cools down and this will result to fine cloud of airborne water droplets that can be seen by the naked eye.
The device, when used for medical inhalation therapy, has to be administered directly to the patient’s lungs. This must be checked and always performed to make sure that the medicine will go directly on the part of the body that needs such. The aerosol droplets that are inhaled can go through the fine branches of the lower airways. If the device won’t be administered properly, the medicine would only reach the mouth cavity and this will result to little comfort and effectiveness to the ailing patient.
There are various kinds of nebulizers these days that come in different nebulizer sizes. The most common of all these types is the Jet nebulizer. This may be due to that fact that this requires low operational cost. This is preferred by patients who need to use the machine on a daily basis, such as those with severe asthma and serious cases of respiratory ailments. This kind is heavier than the other types and generates noise up to 60dB while in use. There are efforts from several manufacturers to develop this kind of Nebulizer that weigh about 635 grams.
This only goes to show that this is an important device that benefits many people who have certain respiratory problems.
