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.

“There is no better care available than with Optimum Direct Care (ODC). We have been with Dr. Muzzi and Erin for several years now. The attention to detail, quick response and holistic approach to your health is unrivaled. They provide peace of mind for always knowing you can reach your doctor anytime. There is no waiting, no repeating who you are and your history over and over. No making multiple calls to the doctors office for requesting your prescription refills or holding your breath to be able to make an appointment for urgent care. We love the direct care model as we were part of another similar practice in the area before coming to Dr Muzzi. However they charged not only premium prices for monthly membership but in addition a top dollar price for every visit. With ODC it is just your monthly membership fee. Our family highly recommends Dr. Muzzi and ODC. They feel like our extended family. ”
