A nebulizer is a device that sprays a fine, liquid mist of medicine. It is often used in younger children who can’t use inhalers. The device has an air compressor, a cup for medicine, and tubing connected to a mouthpiece or mask. Your child breathes in the medicine through the mouthpiece or mask. Each treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
You may be prescribed a nebulizer for your child to give nebulized medication treatment to help relieve your child’s symptoms. The treatment and administration depends on the name of the medication, the dose, and how frequent it needs to be given.
