Nebulizer Treatment for Lung Conditions Available in Orlando, FL

Nebulizer Treatment Orlando FLA type of respiratory therapy, nebulizer treatment uses a special drug-delivery device (nebulizer) that converts liquid medication into a fine, inhalable mist. The medication is then breathed in normally through a mask that covers the nose and mouth.

A nebulizer is an efficient way to deliver medication directly into the lungs, where it can loosen mucus so that it can be coughed out more easily, and also relax the airway muscles so that air can move in and out of the lungs more efficiently. Nebulizer treatment can be helpful for managing the symptoms of flu, allergies, asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD.

What Does Nebulizer Treatment Involve?

Nebulizer treatment can be easily administered with excellent results. Typically, a treatment session goes like this:

  • The liquid medication is added to the medicine cup of the nebulizer (according to a doctor’s prescription).
  • A special mask, which is connected to the nebulizer with plastic tubing, is placed over the patient’s nose and mouth.
  • The patient is asked to take slow, deep breaths.
  • Powered by electricity, the nebulizer passes compressed air through the liquid medication, forming tiny droplets to create an aerosol spray.
  • Once converted to mist form, the medication passes from the nebulizer to the mask via the plastic tubing.
  • As the patient breathes normally through the mask, the medication is absorbed into his or her lungs.
  • Each treatment session takes approximately 10-15 minutes.

As compared to the use of a metered-dose inhaler, nebulizer treatment is simpler and more relaxing for the patient. Because the treatment works passively and the nebulizer does all the work, it is unnecessary to coordinate hand movements with a breathing rhythm, making it a good option for children, elderly adults, and disabled individuals. Furthermore, the nebulizer automatically delivers the correct medication dosage.

“When I left my corporate job to start my own business, one of many new challenges was finding quality health care. When I was starting to look for a new Primary Care Doctor, a peer recommended Direct Primary Care. I did some research and found Dr. Muzzi. In the years leading up to finding Dr. Muzzi, the way I think about my health evolved to fit a more modern view of health and science with a focus on overall wellness and preventative medicine. I was surprised and delighted on my first visit to find Dr. Muzzi not only shared this view, but was practicing medicine in this way. Focusing on my overall wellness rather than treating symptoms has improved my quality of life and undoubtedly add quality years to my life. Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. I never imagined Dr. Muzzi existed before I found her. Now, I can’t picture a future of my healthcare without her. If the traditional Doctor / Patient relationship makes you feel like you’re stuck in I4 traffic (frustrated & certain no one will ever fix it) and you want to change that, you’re in the right place.”
