A nebulizer breathing machine is a piece of medical equipment that physicians use to convert liquid medications into mists that can be inhaled. Nebulizer breathing treatments are used to help patients with asthma and certain lung disorders breathe more easily. Compared to traditional treatments, nebulizer breathing machines can offer faster results and fewer side effects, helping to support long-term health.

What You Can Expect From Nebulizer Breathing Treatments
You can expect your nebulizer breathing therapy to take around 10 to fifteen minutes per treatment. During the procedure, you will wear a facemask attached to the nebulizer machine that will pass the mist medication into your airway. The treatment should be easy and pain-free. Afterward, you may experience brief side effects, including jitteriness, rapid heartbeat, and anxiety. Rarer side effects include headaches, nausea, or throat irritation.
