Who can benefit from a nebulizer?

A nebulizer is a machine that helps you to breathe in medicine as a fine mist through a mask or a mouthpiece. In this Blog, we explain who can benefit from using a nebulizer as part of their treatment. We also explain what medications can be delivered by nebulizers.

Medications delivery by a nebulizer

Is a nebuliser appropriate for my lung condition?

In order to treat your lung condition, you may be offered medications delivered by a nebulizer. In this case, your doctor will decide based on your condition. There are some lung conditions that do not require treatment with a nebuliser.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. It includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
As part of your usual treatment for COPD, nebulizers are no more effective at delivering drugs than handheld inhalers. However, if your condition is severe, you may need to use a nebulizer in the hospital for a short time. In some circumstances, your consultant may arrange for you to use a nebulizer at home.

Cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a disorder that damages your lungs, digestive tract and other organs. It's an inherited disease caused by a defective gene that can be passed from generation to generation.
Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. When you have cystic fibrosis, you can use a nebulizer to deliver medications to manage mucus build-up and other symptoms.


Bronchiectasis is a long-term condition where the airways of the lungs become widened, leading to a build-up of excess mucus that can make the lungs more vulnerable to infection.
In order to manage mucus buildup in people with bronchiectasis, saltwater solutions can be delivered through nebulizers. Taking this medication helps reduce the thickness of phlegm, making it easier to cough it up. Having a bacterial infection can also mean receiving antibiotics through a nebulizer.


Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and may produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, a whistling sound (wheezing) when you breathe out and shortness of breath.
If you have asthma, your health care professional is very likely to say you need to use a nebulizer at home. However the latest research shows using a reliever inhaler with an aero spacer is easier and just as effective.

Pulmonary fibrosis

Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it difficult for your lungs to work properly. As it worsens, you become more short of breath.
For people with pulmonary fibrosis, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), saltwater solution can be used to help manage mucus build-up.

Η ρυθμιζόμενη βαλβίδα είναι σε θέση να παρέχει διαμεσολάβηση διαφορετικού επιπέδου ιξώδους ανάλογα με τις συνθήκες και τις ανάγκες κάθε χρήστη. Η τεχνολογία VAT επιτρέπει στους χρήστες να προσαρμόζουν διαφορετικά επίπεδα ρυθμού εκνέφωσης που κυμαίνονται από 0,08-0,50 ml / min σε σταθερό μέγεθος σωματιδίων. Οι ρυθμοί εκνέφωσης μπορούν να ρυθμιστούν από τον χρήστη με πολύ εύκολο τρόπο χωρίς την ανταλλαγή εξαρτημάτων.

Το ποσοστό υψηλότερης εκνέφωσης (πλήρως ανοιχτή) είναι για φάρμακα υψηλότερου ιξώδους και χρήστες υψηλότερης αναπνευστικής ικανότητας, ενώ μικρότερο ποσοστό εκνέφωσης με κλειστή βαλβίδα είναι πιο κατάλληο για παιδιά/βρέφη με μικρότερη αναπνευστική ικανότητα. Η τεχνολογία VAT συνιστάται για αναπνευστικές διαταραχές όπως χρόνια αποφρακτική πνευμονοπάθεια (ΧΑΠ) και το άσθμα, καθώς και γενικά για εντατική χρήση.

Benefits of Nebulizer therapy

Nebulizer therapy at home delivers medication directly to the lungs, where it is needed and can be most effective. As a result, this kind of therapy works more quickly and gets better results with smaller doses than pills or injections. Although the lungs can only absorb 10–15% of the medication they receive, the American Association for Respiratory Care says that using nebulizers correctly is particularly important. There are many types of medications that can be used with nebulizers. Multiple types of medications can be delivered simultaneously with a nebulizer. Due to the fact that nebulizers require smaller doses of medication to be effective, home nebulizer therapy may lead to fewer undesirable side effects than other forms of therapy. The average home nebulizer therapy session lasts 15 to 25 minutes.
