Nebulizer and Compressors
Dispersion of aerosol particles generated by a nebulizer is expressed by the median mass aerodynamic diameter (MMAD), the diameter measurement around which the mass of particles is equally distributed.The definition of an aerosol is a "mixture of gas and liquid particles," and the best example of a naturally occurring aerosol is mist
Mode of operation
For Continuous Nebulisation
For intermittent inhalation that synchronise with breathing
Type of Device
The compressor is the heart of the device. It pumps air into the medication container or cup to form a breathable mist.
Mesh nebulisers, can be used to nebulise aqueous solutions, but can be less efficient in nebulising suspensions.
Piston-Pump Compressor (also called Jet or Aerosol Nebulizers). Delivers air from a piston-powered compressor through the liquid medication.
The UltraNeb is a high output ultrasonic nebuliser used for humidification, sputum induction and aerosol therapy."Sputum induction" by inhalation of hypertonic saline is a noninvasive, simple, cost effective and safe procedure to collect respiratory secretions from lung airways for diagnosis of various respiratory diseases
A nebuliser mask fits over the mouth and nose to deliver medication directly to the airways.
