Nebulizer is a device that turns liquid forms of medicine into fine mist that can be inhaled for treating asthma. Types of nebulizer:
- Small volume nebulizer is a pneumatically powered device used to aerosolize medications for delivery to patients.
- Ultrasonic nebulizer is an electronic device that generates ultrasound waves that break up water into an aerosol mist.
- Venturi nebulizer is a type of nebulizer used in aerosol therapy. The pressure drop of gas flowing through the venturi mask draws liquid from a capillary tube; as the liquid enters the gas stream it breaks up into a spray of small droplets.
