Lung ailments do not discriminate for or against the young. Even children can suffer from asthma severe enough to warrant the use of a child nebulizers. If you are a parent, you will want to find a product that is easy to use and one that will not frighten your child, and if you are a pediatrician you will need an effective child nebulizer to allow your patient to get the fullest benefit possible from the medications. Look no farther than here at Medical Supplies Equipment Company. Here, there is a selection of child nebulizers to fill the specific needs of young patients while comforting them during treatment.
Nebulizers work by forcing air through a liquid medicine. This then is turned into a breathable vapor, which is inhaled through either a mouthpiece or a mask. Inhalation is the best method of taking these drugs since they target the lungs, and if taken in a pill form, they would have adverse effects on the body. A child nebulizer must be used according to the pediatrician's instructions. If all of the medicine is not taken, the benefits of the drug are lessened or lost.
Most young patients are scared to use nebulizers for children. For the medication to work properly, though, it must be actively inhaled. This means that the parent cannot just blow the medicated vapors past a sleeping child. The patient himself must use either the mouthpiece or the mask that came with the child nebulizer. After taking the treatment, it is important that the parent rinses out the child's mouth and the mouthpiece or mask. This helps to wash away any remnants of the drugs in the mouth and the bad aftertaste that can occur with many breathing treatments. Especially if the child nebulizer dispenses steroids, the mouth has to be washed since left over steroids can lead to thrush, which is a yeast infection of the mouth. If symptoms such as white patches or areas inside the mouth appear inflamed, contact your pediatrician.He can recommend the best treatment, but do not stop using the child nebulizer unless specifically instructed to do so. Thrush is common in most infants even if they at not using steroids, and it often causes no pain for the child.
