Nebulizer Equipment

A nebulizer is a medical device that delivers liquid medication in the form of a mist to be inhaled into the lungs. It is used to treat patients who have cystic fibrosis, asthma, COPD, and other respiratory diseases or disorders.

Nebulizers serve the same function as pocket-sized metered-dosed inhalers, but are easier for children and some adults to use.

Your physician will prescribe the type of medicine and dose to use in your nebulizer.

Lifespan Pharmacy will mail the medications to your home postage-free. Reach the Rhode Island Hospital location at 401-444-4909 or The Miriam Hospital location at 401-793-5500.
