Did you know?
About 44,000 American citizens have to deal with an asthma attack everyday, and 1,200 people are hospitalized because of the condition. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, presently, there are 7.1 million children in the United States who have asthma.
The basic function of a nebulizer machine is similar to devices such as the metered dose inhaler (MDI) and the dry powder inhaler (DPI). All these machines work to deliver asthma medicines directly into the lungs. Most people prefer nebulizers over MDIs or DPIs. This is because, for using an inhaler the user has to maintain a coordination between squeezing the device and inhaling the medicine. Also, the user must take deep breaths to receive the medicine properly. However, with a nebulizer, the user does not need to do anything but wear a mask and simply breathe in the mist. Furthermore, with a nebulizer, the user gets the recommended dosage of medicine. Given its ease of use, this machine is more helpful in treating infants, children, the elderly, and people who are physically challenged. The rest of the article gives you reviews on some popular nebulizer machines on the market.
