For a patient with severe asthma, it is likely that he will be prescribed some form of steroid or inhaled medication in order to control his condition. These drugs are often inhaled with the use of a nebulizer. A physician must be aware of the various types of nebulizers available in order to recommend the best one for the patient. By having asthma medication treatments at home, the patient is more likely to prevent the most severe attacks that result in hospitalization.
The age of the patient must be taken into account when looking at nebulizers to recommend. Since children have much smaller mouths than adults, they will require specially sized nebulizers. These are equipped either with a smaller mouthpiece or a masks for inhalation purposes. Many of the models nebulizers for children that are available have whimsical designs. These are crafted to put the youth's mind at ease and to make taking the breathing treatment less of a frightening task. It is also important that any child nebulizer is quiet, since loud, unfamiliar noises are just as scary for the young.
Adult nebulizer at Medical Supplies Equipment Company are all very quiet to use, whether they are the standard or portable type. The needs of the patient, both lifestyle and economics must be taken into consideration. Handheld and portable nebulizers might be more compact, and easier to tote than standard models, but they are also more susceptible to dust and environmental debris. These are also typically a bit higher in price than standard nebulizers.
Whether the patient is an adult or a child, the practitioner must be able to assess if a nebulizer's mouthpiece will fit into the patient's mouth comfortably enough to remain there for the entire treatment procedure. If the patient is unable to use a mouthpiece properly, then he should be given a nebulizer masks that will cover the mouth and nose as it delivers the drug treatment course.
