As a parent, you are in tune with your child’s health and needs. But there is no way to keep track of every possible symptom your child may exhibit or all the treatments available for children. Aeroflow Healthcare Pediatrics division can help you become more knowledgeable and aware. One type of medical device Aeroflow provides for many children’s needs is a nebulizer.
Many children require a nebulizer machine to help with a respiratory disorder such as asthma. When child asthma symptoms go beyond a stuffy nose or itchy eyes, their doctor may prescribe the use of a nebulizer for breathing assistance. Signs your child may require the use of a nebulizer include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.
A nebulizer is a machine that’s used to deliver medication (most commonly asthma medication) to the lungs. It does this by converting liquid medication into a mist that can then be inhaled. Both children and adults use nebulizers. However, there are many versions of a Nebulizer machine made specifically for your child’s use and comfort.
Aeroflow Pediatrics offers compressor nebulizer systems for treating children. The compressor nebulizer system is designed to provide a source of compressed air for aerosol therapy. It is used in conjunction with a jet (pneumatic) nebulizer to produce medicated aerosols for inhalation by pediatric and adult patients with respiratory symptoms. These machines are offered in a variety of child-friendly models, some even made to look like a penguin or race car!
Child Nebulizer machines are meant for use in accordance with a physician’s prescription. If you think your child may suffer respiratory illnesses or weakness, consult your child’s pediatrician and ask about nebulizer treatment.
