Inhalation equipment

Inhalation therapy aids treat acute and chronic diseases of the lower and upper respiratory tract, such as bronchitis, bronchial asthma, cystic fibrosis or pneumonia. Infections of the nasopharynx such as colds and irritable or whooping cough can also be treated with inhalation devices.

Inhalations are cleansing, anti-inflammatory, soothing and soften dried secretions. Inhalation devices administer gaseous active substances or aerosols (mixture of solid and/or liquid suspended particles and air) such as cooking salts, essential oils or medicines atomized into mists.

Warm air inhalers are suitable for people who are sensitive to cold deep inhalation. These devices take in ambient air and warm it before inhalation.

Inhalation can take place via a steam bath or via technical devices such as nebuliser systems. A distinction is made between:

  • Nebuliser: a compressor produces compressed air, which carries liquid particles with it
  • Ultrasonic nebulizers: an ultrasonic crystal generates vibrations in the liquid, which eject droplets
  • Membrane nebuliser: the liquid is pressed through a membrane with a defined pore size, forming droplets

There are also combination devices which can additionally aspirate secretions.
