Inhalers & Nebulizers

Several types of devices deliver medication to the lungs, from quick and simple inhalers to nebulizers, which are mist-producing machines often used for more severe conditions or by those who have trouble inhaling sharply. 

Inhalation devices come in three basic types:

  • Metered dose inhalers are small, convenient, canister-based devices
  • Dry powder inhalers are similar but require less timing
  • Nebulizers produce a mist that is gradually breathed in

Always check what you have received at the pharmacy to make sure the name, medication name and the medication look like what you expect.
