Nebulizers are devices used to administer medication into the lungs through inhaling. Nebulizers change medication from a liquid into a mist to easily administer it to the lungs. Nebulizers are commonly used in treating cystic fibrosis, asthma, COPD and other respiratory diseases. Nebulizers require a doctor�s prescription. Portable nebulizers typically run on batteries or can be plugged into A/C car units. Portable nebulizers are small in size and can be easily stored for convenience. Portable nebulizers are usually more expensive than standard or in-home nebulizers. Pediatric nebulizers are typically quiet, easy to use and child friendly. Pediatric nebulizers have the same use as standard nebulizers and should require a pediatrician�s instruction. Pediatric nebulizers take a non-threatening approach to help relax and calm children with their use for illnesses such as asthma.
