Inhaler for children from cough and cold: effective and safe treatment
The most effective method of treatment is a local effect (or a set of external and internal measures). Inhalation is the very method that allows local action on the respiratory tract. The medicine enters the hearth of inflammation and immediately begins to work.
Earlier inhalation at home was possible only in the form of inhalation of steam from herbal decoctions or essential oils in boiling water. Or you could have inhaled in the hospital. Now there are devices that anyone can buy and do this procedure at home. The inhaler atomizes the drug, converts it into steam. And the smallest particles of this vapor enter the respiratory tract and immediately begin to act.
The medical name of the device is a nebulizer. The inhaler began to be called in colloquial speech, but this word entered into the official texts. These concepts are almost identical, they differ in that only those devices that work with drugs can be called a nebulizer, and the steam device also belongs to inhalers.
