Nebulization is a form of respiratory care. It is the medical process of administering medication directly by inhalation, with the help of a nebulizer that converts liquid medicine into mist, which is then given to the patient with the help of a breathing mask. Nebulization is typically administered to young patients with Asthma, COPD and patients needing respiratory care for other breathing problems and is unable to use inhalers. Nebulisation is sometimes also prescribed for severe cases of nasal and chest congestion.
The nebulization procedure in nursing is fairly simple however, caution needs to be exercised. The steps to be followed for the nebulization procedure are as follows;
In case of nebulization being given to infants take extra care and hold the baby and the breathing mask firmly in place.
After undergoing a nebulization nursing procedure the effects are almost immediately seen with noticeable difference in breathing sounds and no further wheezing sound and less chest tightening feeling. Patients with nose and chest blockage also find instant relief from this therapy.
Although rare, some patients have been known to develop negative reaction to the nebulisation process like;
When using a nebulizer at home it is essential that proper care is taken regarding the care of the nebulizer, as the machine and the mouthpiece can build up bacteria over time. The mouth piece should be clean after every use with alcohol or hot water. If the hand held nebulizers gets clogged it should be replaced immediately.
