"One Minute Asthma" by Thomas F. Plaut, M.D. on Ganxy

One Minute Asthma
Asthma Nebulizer or Mist Machine

One Minute Asthma provides all the information you need on how to use an asthma nebulizer to control your asthma. The asthma nebulizer is also called a mist machine or a compressor driven nebulizer. The asthma nebulizer or mist machine changes a liquid medicine into a mist that you can breathe in. Use an asthma nebulizer if you are too sick to use a metered dose inhaler with a holding chamber. A treatment with an asthma nebulizer takes about 6 minutes. For best results use a mouthpiece rather than a mask with your asthma nebulizer. Place the asthma nebulizer mouthpiece flat on your tongue, like a Popsicle. Close your lips tightly around the mouthpiece of the asthma nebulizer. If you hold the nebulizer mouthpiece outside the mouth, much less medicine will get into the lungs. To inhale medicine from a mist machine or asthma nebulizer breathe slowly, Take longer to breathe in from the mist machine than when you breathe out, The mist machine has a motor that forces air into a plastic cup that produces the mist. Some mist machine cups are three times as effective as others. You can use a mist machine or asthma nebulizer to deliver five different kinds of asthma medicines. See One Minute Asthma for more details.
