A nebuliser is a machine to deliver asthma medication by turning it into a mist to be inhaled through a face mask or mouthpiece

All you needed to know about Nebulizers and Compressors

A nebulizer is a device that is used to administer medication in a misty form that is inhaled into the lungs. Nebulizers are used for treating asthma and other respiratory disorders. The device uses mechanical energy to transform the state of the liquid medication into aerosol which is nothing but mist of fine droplets.

A compressor nebulizer converts the liquid medication into a mist so that it can be effectively inhaled by either breathing naturally, through a mask or through a mouthpiece. The nebulizer and compressor aerosolize the liquid medication quickly so that the medication precisely reaches deep into the patient’s lungs thus reducing drug wastage....

Technical Details

MMAD (%/microns)

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
Compressor Nebuliser

The compressor is the heart of the device. It pumps air into the medication container or cup to form a breathable mist.

Mesh Nebuliser

Mesh nebulisers, can be used to nebulise aqueous solutions, but can be less efficient in nebulising suspensions.

Piston Nebuliser

Piston-Pump Compressor (also called Jet or Aerosol Nebulizers). Delivers air from a piston-powered compressor through the liquid medication.

Ultrasonic Nebuliser

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.
