English translation:bifurcated nasal tube; thermoinhalation
Explanation:
The bifurcated nasal tube is the small, usually transparent tube with two smaller tubes set into it at right angles, allowing oxygen to be supplied directly to the base of the nostrils. Thermoinhalation is simply the act of breathing in air that has been warmed or mildly heated (by the associated equipment (apparecchio)). HTH!

nasal fork/ thermoinhalation


Explanation:
Heathcliff's answer may be correct. The instruction manual that came with our "apparecchio per aerosolterapia" by Angelini, has the translation "nasal fork" for "forcella nasale". Good luck.

Explanation:
Depending on your context, termale could also refer to "terme", the hot springs. At many of the spas, a person can request "inalazioni termali" as part of their treatment. I don't know what the specific name for this type of treatment is in English. I checked two spa guide books, but they were only written in Italian.Best regards,
Andréa

nasal fork/inhalation with thermal water


Explanation:
Solo un breve commento: le termoinalazioni non si riferiscono al liquido "riscaldato termicamente" bensi' al fatto che il liquido usato e' di provenienza termale. Si tratta di apparecchi per aerosolterapia che permettono di effettuare a casa terapie altrimenti molto costose offerte da centri termali.
Lo so per diretta esperienza!

nasal fork/ mineral water inhalation therapy / mineral water thermoinhalation(unit)


Explanation:
The closest that I could come to a reference for "inalazione termale" is Diziorom's translation of "termalismo". The translation provided for "termalismo" is "mineral water therapy". I am guessing that a treatment using mineral water in inhalation therapy would be called mineral water inhalation therapy. I'm sure that the water must also be vaporized for use, so mineral water thermoinhalation may also be a possible translation. I hope that this helps.
Very best regards,
Andréa
