A Good Helper To Take Care Of The Elderly And Children-Nebulizer

What is a nebulizer?
A nebulizer is a small machine that creates a mist out of liquid medication, allowing for quicker and easier absorption of medication into the lungs.
Nebulizers are also a helpful way to deliver medication during palliative care and to very young children.
How to use?
In general, a nebulizer is very easy to use, with only a few basic steps:
  1. Wash the hands.
  2. Add the medicine to the medicine cup, according to the doctor’s prescription.
  3. Assemble the top piece, tubing, mask, and mouthpiece.
  4. Attach the tubing to the machine, according to the instructions.
  5. Turn the nebulizer on; they can be battery- or electrically powered.
  6. While using the nebulizer, hold the mouthpiece and medicine cup upright to help deliver all the medication.
  7. Take slow, deep breaths through the mouthpiece and inhale all the medicine.
Daily Cleaning:
  1. Take off the mouthpiece/mask and remove the medication container.
  2. Wash these parts with hot water and mild liquid dish soap.
  3. Shake off the extra water.
  4. Let these pieces air dry on a clean piece of paper towel or dish towel.
