English translation:-
Explanation:
One vial placed in the nebulizer.


a device used to convert liquid medication to a fine mist that can be inhaled.
aids.hallym.ac.kr/dict/n.html

a machine that changes liquid medicine into fine droplets (in aerosol or mist form) that are inhaled through a mouthpiece or mask. Nebulizers can be used to deliver bronchodilator (airway-opening) medications such as Albuterol and Atrovent. A nebulizer may be used instead of a metered dose inhaler (MDI). It is powered by a compressed air machine and plugs into an electrical outlet.

Device (small air compressor, typically) for transforming a liquid (medicine) into a vapor. The vapor is inhaled, usually by means of a face mask or mouthpiece, into the lungs. The nebulization of the medicine into extremely fine particles increases the absorption rate by the lungs, making this one of the most effective delivery techniques available for home use. Less expensive nebulizers use an air compressor; ultrasonic models are very portable, nearly silent and faster but quite a bit more expensive. Need more information on nebulizers? Read this great fact sheet and our tips page.

A machine for getting medicine into the lungs. A nebulizer makes a mixture of liquid medicine and water into a mist that a person then inhales (through a mask or a mouthpiece). Nebulizers are often used for babies and children too small to be able to coordinate using a metered dose inhaler. They are also sometimes used for people having severe asthma symptoms, as many people find it easier to take in the medicine this way when they are having a lot of trouble breathing.

The medication solution that you will use in an aerosol machine may come in a multi-dose bottle with a dropper, or in a small plastic vial.

If using a multi-dose bottle of medicine, use the dropper to put the correct amount of medication into the cup with saline solution. If your medicine is in single-use vials, twist open the top of the plastic vial and then squeeze the contents into the nebulizer cup.
