Best Portable Nebulizers: What Are They?
Portable Ultrasonic Nebulizers (PUN) are devices which use ultrasonics to produce high pressure air into a small space. These devices work by using sound waves to create a vacuum inside your body. The vacuum then sucks in any unwanted particles or gases from outside your body such as pollen, dust, bacteria and viruses.
The main advantage of these devices over traditional inhalers is they do not require regular cleaning. You just need to replace the batteries every few months. They are very convenient when traveling because you don’t have to carry around an inhaler with you all the time.
Also, there are no side effects like allergic reactions, asthma attacks or other respiratory problems associated with inhaling harmful particles in the air.
Another great thing about portable nebulizers is they are very inexpensive compared to other types of medical equipment. For example, a set of PUN will cost less than $100.00 and it lasts for years without needing to be replaced.
Another benefit is you can take them anywhere since they weigh little and fit easily in your pocket or purse.
But the most important thing is that a portable nebulizer can help you reverse any respiratory problems, like shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, and even save your life if used immediately after an asthma attack. Whatever the nature of your medical condition might be, this device will surely benefit you by opening up your airways and allow you to breathe normally. However, for PUN to work effectively, you need to take medicine in the form of solution.
Fortunately, you can find the required solution in your local drugstores.
Types of Portable Nebulizers:
There are two main types of portable nebulizers: ultrasonic and battery operated. Ultrasonic nebulizers produce high-frequency oscillations that break down medicine into small particles that can easily enter your lungs. Ultrasonic devices are ideal for people who suffer from respiratory issues such as lung diseases like cystic fibrosis or emphysema.
Battery operated nebulizers are hand-held devices that can be used anywhere. The only disadvantage is that you will need to change the batteries after a few hours of usage.
What Are The Advantages Of Using A Portable Nebulizer?
There are several benefits of using portable nebulizers for people who suffer from respiratory diseases, including alleriges. You can use it anytime and anywhere.
