Definition

Aerosol therapy consists of administering aerosol drugs to the airways. An aerosol is a system of solid particles (powder) or liquids (droplets) of small diameter and size, which remain suspended in the air.

Indications

Aerosol therapy is used for lung diseases (asthma, chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis …) or ENT (laryngitis, sinusitis, otitis) to quickly deliver a drug to the respiratory tract.

It is also used to moisten the respiratory tract, in infants during bronchiolitis, in the tracheotomized patient or the end-of-life patient.

Pneumatic

Pneumatic nebulizing aerosol therapy, or pneumatic nebulizer or so called inhaler, are conventional aerosol dispensers used for the administration of central and peripheral bronchopulmonary medications prescribed for the treatment of respiratory disorders such as chronic bronchitis , asthma, pneumocystosis, cystic fibrosis, allergies.

Ultrasonic

Aerosol therapy by ultrasonic nebulization, also called piezoelectric, is done by a type of device that uses an element commonly called “quartz”.

This “quartz”, subjected to a high frequency, creates vibrations generating waves. These progress to the liquid to be sprayed and splitting into fine droplets. These droplets are conveyed to the patient by a stream of pulsed air.

Ultrasonic nebulizers will therefore nebulize the drug preparation in the form of ultrasound.

Humidifier

An air humidifier is a device used to temper the atmosphere especially if it is too dry. To become familiar with the operation of an air humidifier, be aware that this is a device that optimizes breathing by bringing more moisture to the air that reigns in a room. The air humidifier is equipped with a hygrometer that will determine the humidity level in a room or a living room for example. If it is too weak, the device is put in place. It serves to enhance the humidity in a room.
