A nebulizer is a breathing machine used to treat pulmonary conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, and other respiratory illnesses. They administer medication in the form of the mist that is inhaled directly into the lungs, via a mask or mouthpiece. Because inhalers cannot be used by infants and can be difficult for children to use effectively, pediatric nebulizers
are often the best option when it comes to treating youngsters’ respiratory conditions.
If you need a little extra oxygen, don’t worry—there are plenty of ways to get it! From traditional face masks to innovative oxygen eyeglasses, here are the most popular oxygen delivery methods. Read More
Modern nebulizers Read More
don’t resemble the clunky machines of old – they’re small, easy-to-use, and offer quick treatment times. Even with these recent innovations, human errors can result in an ineffective treatment, wasting medication, money, and time. By far the biggest culprit is improper cleaning; if you don’t keep your nebulizer in top condition, bacteria can grow in the tubing and console, clogging it up and increasing your risk of infection.
If you or a loved one suffers from asthma, COPD, or any other respiratory or pulmonary issues, maintaining blood oxygen balance is critical. A simple way to monitor O2 saturation, as well as heart rate level, is to use a fingertip pulse oximeter
As many of our readers know, it can be scary to have a child who suffers from asthma especially when their symptoms get worse. Fortunately, nebulizers
are readily available in America and most people can afford one. But not everyone is so blessed.
According to CDC estimates, there are 7.1 million children in the United States currently living with the condition, and that number is expected to rise even higher in the coming years. Asthma is a common culprit for missed school days and sports practices, hospitalizations - even deaths. Read More
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is, for lack of a better term, the Bible of abnormal psychology. It’s the definitive authoritative text on the classification of mental disorders, and it’s used by pretty much everyone - clinicians, health insurance companies, the legal system, even the government – to ensure that clinicians and patients have the “right” diagnosis when it comes to mental health problems.

treat congestion and irritated airways by adding moisture to the air. This moisturizing mist can be warm or cool, depending on your preferences. Just what temperature is right for you? Read on to find out.
The pulse oximeter
is a tool designed to measure the levels of oxygen saturation in the blood. This is achieved by passing two wavelengths of light through the patient to a photo-detector that measures the absorbency levels of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. The entire process takes only seconds, and you don’t have to worry about pricking your finger to check on your health.
When it comes to nebulizers, parents often face a fair amount of opposition from their little ones. No child likes their playtime to be cut short, especially if they have to sit still and take their medicine. The trick to fighting tantrums (and asthma) is to make nebulizer treatments an extension of playtime. Here are four nebulizer systems that are sure to put a smile on any kid’s face. Read More
Once upon a time, nebulizers were big bulky machines that patients often had to go to a hospital to use. Now days, they fit in the palm of your hand and are owned by millions. If you need a handheld nebulizer
, here are the four we’d most recommend.
Humans aren’t the only ones who get respiratory illnesses. Sometimes our pets need nebulizer treatments
too. Unfortunately, your dog or cat may not want to sit still for a nebulizer treatment. Here are several things you can do to make the process easier for everyone.
Recently, we began selling oximeters. What do they have to do with your respiratory health?
Oximeters indirectly measure the oxygen levels in your blood and can be an important indicator of how well your respiratory treatment is going. Normal levels (Sp02) generally range between 90 – 100 depending upon your age and preexisting respiratory conditions.
Cruises are a great and fun vacation option for people of all ages. For those with asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, or other breathing illness, planning ahead for vacation nebulizer treatments can be stressful. Traditional nebulizer machines can be big and bulky. Read More
Nebulizers are relatively simple devices, but they require occasional cleaning and maintenance to make sure they’re working properly. Some manufacturers recommend you sterilize the nebulizer cup (not the tubing, mask or machine) once a week. Others say after every other treatment. Read More
