A nebuliser is an electrical device that converts liquid medication into a medicated mist that you inhale using a mask or a mouthpiece. Nebulisers are, quite simply, easy to use. Unlike inhalers, which need a person to breathe in when releasing the medication, the medication contained in a nebuliser treatment will flow continuously. This means you can breathe normally during treatment. Newer models of nebulisers are small enough to be portable, although not quite at the portability level as inhalers, which can fit properly in your pocket.

Nebuliser treatments can prevent respiratory problems from developing initially or getting worse. They are also effective in treating acute breathing emergencies. Long-term bronchodilators that you use every day can keep the bronchial tubes open. Using a nebuliser is safe as it has no side effects of inhaling the medicine.
