Nebulizer Machine: Setup, Uses, Costs and Everything You Need To Know

A nebulizer is a breathing device used in the management of respiratory diseases such as Asthma, chronic obstructive lung/pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, and a few other lung conditions. A nebulizer machine delivers medication in the form of vapors or mist which is inhaled by the patient, typically through a mouthpiece. It is often used when the usually prescribed inhalers are difficult to use or become ineffective for the patient. A nebulizer provides the drug with lesser effort and is the treatment of choice when the condition of the patient is worsening.
