This eight-page illustrated handout educates people about nebulizer treatments, which are also called breathing treatments, aerosol treatments, or med nebs. It explains that a nebulizer is a machine that turns liquid medicine into a fine mist that is able to go more deeply into the airways of the lungs. It provides step by step instructions for how to take a nebulizer treatment with a mask or mouthpiece, and identifies those symptoms for which treatment should be stopped. The document contains instructions for preparing medicine, as well as for cleaning the nebulizer equipment to prevent infections.
