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.

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
