What is a Nebulizer?

A nebulizer uses compressed air to make liquid into a gas that looks like steam, and people breathe that over about 3 to 7 minutes. This is most optimal for people who have a difficult time taking a deep breath.  A liquid form of the medicine is placed into the chamber. There is a tube that connects to the base of the chamber that causes the liquid form of the medication to become a mist. The user puts a mask over the nose and mouth, and inhales deeply, enabling the mist to be delivered to the lungs.
