Completing a Treatment

  • Place the mouthpiece of your nebulizer in your mouth. (An aerosol mask is an option for those who have difficulties using a nebulizer.)
  • Sit straight to open the lungs to their full capacity.
  • Take slow, deep breaths.
  • Try to fill your lungs so that you cannot take in any more air.
  • Hold your breath for one to two seconds, or for the length of time your doctor prescribed.
  • Breathe out slowly through the nebulizer's mouthpiece (or through the mask).
  • Repeat this cycle for the length of the treatment.
  • Treatments usually take from five to twenty minutes.
  • *When the medication cup is empty, and no more mist comes from your nebulizer, you are through with treatment.
  • Turn off the compressor and clean your nebulizer.

How a Nebulizer with a Compressor Works

The compressor forces air into a tank. As more air comes in, the pressure increases. This pressurized air gets released into the nebulizer, driving the action. The nebulizer breaks liquid medication down into a fine mist. The mist-laden air moves through the mouthpiece and into the lungs.
