Nebulizers are very handy medical devices which have different applications. The most common use of a nebulizer is to administer medication into the body, which is achieved by delivering the drug in the form of vapor or mist and by means of inhaling the same. These are very commonly used as a remedy from respiratory diseases like asthma, cystic fibrosis, and similar disorders. These apparatus works by breaking down solutions and suspensions that are injected into the container by the help of oxygen, compressed air or an ultrasonic beam of power. The solutions or suspension is broken down into small droplets referred to as aerosols which are a mixture of gas and liquid particles in general. This is then directly inhaled by the patient via the nostrils or mouthpiece that comes along with the device. There are various forms of nebulizers available to pick from. Another kind of nebulizers exists which are of profound use in laboratories and find application in elemental analysis. These are referred to as Analytical nebulizers.
While most of the hospitals and clinics are installed with fixed nebulizers inwards and operation theaters, they are also available in portable variants that can be easily transferred between beds in the case of an emergency. This also makes them an emergency Nebulizer kit that can come in handy to keep in your households. These portable designs come with a unique holder kit and are oil-free. The filter and the mouthpiece can be easily accessed and replaced when deemed necessary. These work on a nominal power of 220 watts and have a medication holding capacity of up to 6ml. These operate silently with a noise level which falls way below 60 decibels which is very low when compared to other apparatus.
Aspirators are suction devices that come handy as they can produce vacuum under all conditions. These are found to have immense importance in the medical field as they are often found handy to remove bodily fluids from a patient. This helps in extracting out the unwanted or the fluids in excess that are found to be accumulating within the body of the patient and keep them healthy. Another application of aspirators is that of a pump that produces a vacuum within a stream of fluid that is constricted to flow within a channel or a media. This is done by following the principle of Venturi effect.
Aspirators are typically high-performance apparatus with a short inhalation or suction time. They work on compressed air technology which makes the device faster and more effective. It also comes equipped with a safety fuse which breaks from the circuit and keeps the device safe in case of voltage overloading or any kind of short circuit. The device is also very compact and lightweight which makes it easy to handle and use. It also provides extensive ventilation making the apparatus an excellent choice for both professional and in-house use. The conventional aspirators are nowadays replaced by devices that work on ultrasonic power to break down the medical solution into aerosol particles. These devices provide different air levels as well, making them way more effective.
