What is Power Neb Ultra Used For?
- People with breathing problems, such as Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are often prescribed medicines that minimize or control the symptoms of their disease.
- Compressor Nebulizer Systems deliver these prescribed medications to the lungs.
- Drive Power Neb Ultra Compressor Nebulizer includes an AC powered air compressor to provide a source of compressed air for home health care use.
- This compressor is used in conjunction with a jet (pneumatic) nebulizer to convert the inhalable drugs into an aerosol form for inhalation by a patient.
- The medications and compressor nebulizer systems are used as directed by a physician to maximize the benefits.
- They can be prescribed for everyday use or periodically as symptoms present themselves.
How Does a Compressor Nebulizer Work?
- Most medicines that are to be used with a Compressor Nebulizer System are created in a liquid form. This liquid medication is placed in the nebulizer cup.
- The compressor is connected to the nebulizer by flexible tubing and generates a specific pressure and flow of air that drives the nebulizer.
- The pressurized air produced by the compressor initiates the ability of nebulizer to break down the liquid medication into a very fine mist.
- This mist is often referred to as an aerosol cloud. It is propelled out of the nebulizer and inhaled into the lungs where the medicine is readily absorbed.
