Home > Specialties > Nebulizers


Definition : Devices designed to provide aerosolized medication and/or humidification to the patient airways. These devices produce both vapor and finely dispersed water droplets in the liquid phase (aerosol mist); they are typically used with a mask or tent or in a breathing circuit. Most nebulizers are either pneumatic (driven by compressed air) or ultrasonic. Most nebulizers include a heating element to provide a warm, humid aerosol.
