Can Nebulizer Be Used For Nasal Congestion?
My doctor wants to ask. I just read about a nebulizer, and it turns out that for sufferers who have respiratory problems, or inflammation I want to ask if a nebulizer can be used for a nose block?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Nebulizer is a tool that can change drugs in the form of liquid into steam (mist) for inhaled by patients. The process of changing the shape of a drug with this tool uses air pressure. This tool uses power from a power source or battery. The drugs used are usually in the form of medicines. Nebulizer is one example of inhalation therapy method. By using a nebulizer, the drug is expected to be delivered directly to the respiratory system.
Drugs that are usually given by using a nebulizer include drugs beta and anticholinergic agonists. Usually these drugs are intended to treat asthma attacks or acute conditions from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In these conditions, drugs in the form of steam are more easily inhaled so that they can be effectively delivered to the airways, especially the lower part.
Nasal congestion is not a common indication for inhalation therapy with a nebulizer. Nasal congestion can be treated using decongestant drugs such as oral medication or nasal spray. To help overcome the problem of nasal congestion, patients are also advised to:
Do nose washing with salt water
Drink plenty of water
