What is a nebuliser?
A nebuliser is a device that helps you take your medication. It changes liquid medicine into a fine mist. You then breathe in the mist through a mouthpiece or a mask.
In an emergency, if you are struggling to breathe and need a high dose of your reliever medicine, your health care professional may give it to you through a nebuliser.
There are a many different types of nebulisers available, such as jet nebulisers and ultrasonic nebulisers. Ultrasonic nebulisers can be expensive and not often used outside hospitals.
