Conspectus Of Nebulizers

Guna Sahiti Kondari, Shivani Prasad, Sakshi Sethi


Nebulization or atomization is a technique of transforming liquid into a fine mist and the machine used for this particular purpose is called a nebulizer. Generally nebulizers can be sorted into jet, ultrasound and mesh which are classified on the basis of the method of production of aerosols from liquid. Various factors such as distal drug deposition on the face and mask, median aerodynamic diameter, remaining drug after nebulizing and nebulization time, determine the extent of performance and its efficiency. All the three kinds of nebulizers have different properties this paper will focus on the nebulizer types, their performance and uses in the medical field.
