A nebulizer turns liquid medicine into a mist to help treat your asthma.
Both are made up of a base that holds an air compressor, a small container for liquid medicine, and a tube that connects the air compressor to the medicine container. Above the medicine container is a mouthpiece or mask you use to inhale the mist.
Nebulizer compressor: The compressor is the base of the system.
Nebulizer cup: This is the reservoir where measured liquid medication goes.
Mouthpiece/mask: This is the opening through which the mist is inhaled.
Tubing: The tubing delivers air from the compressor to the medication cup.
