Nebulisers for Nebulising Aerosols
The nebuliser, also referred to as an inhalation device or inhaler, nebulises medications and is used in inhalation therapy e.g. for acute or chronic lung and bronchial diseases such as chronic bronchitis or asthma. The inhaler creates an aerosol from the inhalation solution (inhalate), which is inhaled by the patient through a nose or mouthpiece. The nebuliser mouthpiece is connected to the nebuliser via a connecting tube.
Easy to Operate and Clean
Our inhalers are characterised by their easy operation. The emission of pre-defined volumes and particle sizes allows the drugs for the lower respiratory tract to be dosed precisely. Moreover, the use of disposable products in areas that are close to the patient allows for prompt reuse. The elements that need to be cleaned are, of course, made from low-maintenance and disinfectable materials.
Nebulisers Specially Designed for Children and Babies
There are special nebulisers that are focused on the needs of little patients, in regards to design and functionality, such as the paediatric nebuliser "Sami the Seal" with cute seal design and particularly short nebulisation times. A special paediatric mask, such as the Pacifier Mask, can further ease the inhalation process. In comparison to an adult mask, this mask is better suited for a child's face.
Advantages of Nebuliser Therapy with Medical Inhalers
While dosage aerosols can be used on the go if needed, nebulisers are commonly used for stationary aerosol therapy in the surgery, hospital or at home. The advantage of moist nebulising, as opposed to dry inhalation, is the effect of respiratory tract moisturisation.
Dry mucous membranes could be the result or corollary of respiratory diseases and often lead to a worsening of the conditions. Moisturisation of the mucous membranes during inhalation supports the natural cleaning function and immune defense system, which encourages the recovery process.
Aerosol Production with Ultrasound, Nozzles or a Resonating Diaphragm
There is a basic difference between the three sorts of nebuliser machines: ultrasonic nebulisers, nozzle nebulisers and nebulisers with diaphragm technology. The diaphragm technology represents the most modern form of aerosol production. The electronic signals put the diaphragm into vibration and, in turn, the resonating diaphragm atomises the medication or liquids to a mist. Because the diaphragm nebuliser is often very small, lightweight and quiet, it is ideal for portable inhalation therapy. The portable nebuliser MicroAIR U100 from Omron, for example, is suited adults, children and babies. It comes in a handy storage bag that contains every accessory needed for successful inhalation therapy.
The nozzle nebuliser, also known as compressor nebuliser, works by means of a compressor to generate compressed air. With us, you will find stationary nozzle nebulisers for particularly quiet operation, like the Omron C28 CompAir or the UN-014 from A&D Instruments. For strictly paediatric use, we even offer the OMRON CompAIR C801 KD with child-friendly design.
Inhalers produce Aerosol Droplets in various Particle Sizes
Depending on the size of the nebuliser created aerosol drops, the inhalator can be applied for various illnesses. Larger inhalate drops (bigger than 15 micrometers) only reach the upper airway, so that illnesses of the upper respiratory tract (e.g. laryngitis, pharyngitis) can be treated.
If the particle size is between 1 and 15 micrometers, the mist will also reach the lower respiratory tract and lungs. Particularly small particles can even reach the smallest of lung pockets. Nebulisers, which produce such respirable particles, are used for the treatment of conditions of the lower respiratory tract, i.e. bronchitis.
In order to prevent the patient from over-inhaling the nebulised medication, which would ultimately be wasted, some inhalers are controlled via breaths or even have a manual mode that shuts of the machine when exhaling.
Nebulisers provide Targeted Medication Administration
Nebulisers offer a particularly thorough form of respiratory therapy, as the medication is delivered where it needs to go during inhalation without disturbing the rest of the organism. This makes inhalation therapy a gentle, local form of therapy with very few side effects. Since nebulisers can also nebulise isotonic saline solution as an inhalation solution, the devices can also be used for preventive inhalation therapy during the cold and flu season or for patients with allergies.
For chronic respiratory conditions and illnesses, such as asthma or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), the inhalation of secretolytics plays an important role in treatment, along with breathing training and physical respiratory therapy.
In our online shop, you will find nebulisers for inhalation therapy in adults and children, available in various designs and with various nebulisation rates. We offer you high-quality inhalers, ready-to-use Nebuliser Sets and accessories from name brand manufacturers like Omron or Beurer at particularly low prices.
