People suffering with asthma find that wide range of irritants cause problems and the dry air that is present in home and at work place only increases the symptoms.

Asthma nebulizer allows you to breathe air with water vapor added which helps to lubricate the windpipe and wash away the agents that may be causing breathing difficulties.
The term nebulizer is used to describe both the pump that pressurizes the air, and the part that holds and nebulizes the medication.
Nebulizer forces the air through the plastic tube into the plastic nebulizer unit.
Nebulizer unit acts like a perfume atomizer which creates a fine mist that is directed either through a tube that you inhale through or a mask that directs the mist into your nose and mouth.
Asthma nebulizer is used for asthma tratment which delivers a stream of medicated air to the lungs over a period of time. Asthma nebulizer uses a mouthpiece or face mask to deliver medication in the form of a fine mist.
