Nebuliser

Nebuliser is included under Appliances.

A Nebuliser is a machine that forms a part of our Appliances cover. A Nebuliser changes medication from a liquid into a mist, so it can be more easily inhaled into the lungs. Nebulisers can be used to deliver a variety of medications both for immediate relief and maintenance of treatment.

They are particularly effective in helping deliver treatment to infants or small children. Nebulisers can range in size, from large tabletop units to smaller, portable models.

You might need Nebuliser if you....

  • Are being treated for asthma
  • Are receiving treatment for a respiratory disease
  • Have children and need assistance administering medication
  • Have cystic fibrosis
