Types of Nebulizer Medicines

Aeroflow Healthcare is the southeast premier respiratory provider. One of the most common respiratory items Aeroflow Healthcare provides to both pediatric and adult patients is a nebulizer, an electrically powered device that turns liquid medication into a fine mist, allowing the medication to be breathed directly into the lungs through the use of a face mask or mouthpiece.

A patient who suffers from symptoms ranging from asthma, COPD to other chronic bronchial lung conditions may be prescribed a nebulizer by his or her doctor.
