Nebulizers can be used for the treatment of asthma. A nebulizer machine, or “breathing machine,” turns liquid asthma medicine into a mist. You then breathe in the medicine through a mask or mouthpiece. Nebulizers may be easier to use than asthma inhalers for some people.
This handout provides information on:
- The different types of nebulizers
- The benefits of using a nebulizer
- How to get a nebulizer and nebulized medicines
- How to use a nebulizer
- How to clean a nebulizer
