What is a nebuliser?
A nebuliser is a machine that helps you to breathe in medicine as a fine mist through a mask or a mouthpiece. We explain what a nebuliser is used for and the different types of nebuliser available. We also explain the difference between nebulisers, inhalers and spacers.
Who can benefit from a nebuliser?
As part of your treatment for your lung condition, you might be offered medications delivered by a nebuliser. This will be specific to your condition. Not all lung conditions require treatment by nebuliser.
