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 are big fans of Dr. Toni Muzzonigro and ODC. She takes great time and care in both listening to us and explaining medical issues. We didn’t get this when we were part of an HMO or PPO healthcare network. For those rare emergencies, I can reach her after hours and receive an immediate response. We also like that she is not totally westernized in her viewpoints and will give holistic advice. Erin and the staff are amazing. They are warm and welcoming. You don’t feel like a number when you visit ODC. Love them!”

“The switch to Dr. Muzzi took some getting used to. I am not accustomed to Doctors actually calling me back promptly nor spending quality time with me analyzing my complete medical make up. In this medical era of “get them in and get them out quickly”, her approach is professionally refreshing.”
