Nebulizers are great at directly treating respiratory ailments. Often, nebulizer treatments can be improved when a nebulizer accessory is used along with the basic nebulizer machine. Here's a list of some of the best nebulizer accessories for adults to help you get the most out of your nebulizer machine:
- Omron Adult Mask – This mask is made of silicon to create a soft feel that won't create any discomfort during use. Masks like this one focus the nebulizer treatment to alleviate any issues you may have with keeping a tight seal with your lips around the nebulizer mouthpiece.
- PARI SinuStar Nebulizer Set – The SinuStar nebulizer kit has one of the smallest particle size output of any nebulizer. Meant specifically for intranasal treatments, this nebulizer kit also comes with a nasal piece to direct the nebulizer treatment's flow to the smaller upper respiratory airways.
- Angled Mouthpieces – These let you take a treatment more comfortably, enabling you to lean back to a 45 degree angle relative to the nebulizer. Helps alleviate back discomfort for those who need multiple treatments in a day.
- Acapella Flutter Valves – These attach to the nebulizer mask/mouthpiece and add resistance and vibrations to the treatment, which loosens lung secretions more effectively. These are mainly used by people with Cystic Fibrosis to help clear airways.
- GO-2 Achieve Fingertip Pulse Oximeter – Oximeters are very helpful if you need regular nebulizer treatments. Oximeters inform you of your blood oxygen level so you can see how well your lungs are functioning and how well your body is receiving your nebulizer treatments.
- Warm Mist Humidifier – Humidifiers put moisture into the air in your home, which helps keep your airways from becoming dry. Dry airways often occur during the winter and are uncomfortable, and can often lead to a dry cough.
Each of these items has its own specific use that, when used together, can create a treatment tailored to your specific needs. Be sure to consult your healthcare provider about any adjustments to your current nebulizer treatments.
