The complete guide to nebulizer therapy at home

The nebulizer turns medicine into a mist that can be breathed in. Inhaling the mist allows the body to absorb the medicine quickly and effectively.
This blog examines the benefits and uses of nebulizer therapy at home, as well as how to use and clean the equipment. There is a wide range of health issues for which home nebulizer therapy is prescribed, but lungs are the most common.

What is home nebulizer therapy?

Home nebulizer therapy works by converting liquid medications into a mist that the user inhales. Nebulizers come in two basic types.
With the jet nebulizer, medications are turned into a mist using compressed air. In the ultrasonic nebulizer, vibrations are used to achieve the same result. Nebulizers may be specified on medicine labels according to the formulation. There are nebulizers designed specifically for children.
Using a nebulizer at home is easier than using other devices, such as an inhaler, as there is no need to coordinate the person's breathing with the machine. Therefore, doctors often prescribe nebulizers to patients who have difficulty using inhalers, such as children, the elderly, or those on ventilators. Moreover, home nebulizer therapy delivers medication more deeply into the lungs than some people can do on their own.

Health problems

Home nebulizer therapy is prescribed for a variety of health problems, but is typically prescribed for lung-related problems, such as:
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • cystic fibrosis
  • asthma
  • emphysema
  • chronic bronchitis

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.

How to use a home nebulizer

A tecnologia de fluxo regulável permite que seja libertada medicação com diferentes níveis de viscosidade de acordo com as necessidades de cada utilizador. Nesta tecnologia os utilizadores podem escolher diferentes taxas de nebulização desde 0.08 até 0.50 ml/min em que o tamanho das partículas de medicação é sempre consistente. Esta taxa de nebulização pode ser ajustada a qualquer momento pelo utilizador sem necessidade de trocar peças.

Taxas altas de nebulização (válvula totalmente aberta) são usadas para medicamentos muito viscosos e para pacientes com capacidade respiratória satisfatória. Por outro lado, taxas baixas de nebulização (válvula fechada) são mais aconselhadas para crianças ou para pessoas com fraca capacidade respiratória. A VAT é recomendada para doenças como DPOC, asma e para pessoas com necessidade de nebulizações intensivas.
