Nebulization is the process of administering medication directly to the lungs via mist inhalation with the help of a nebulizer.
You are requested to carry the doctor’s prescription.
The medicine and the nebulizer kit will be indented from the hospital pharmacy.
There are no specific instructions to be followed before the procedure.
Your child is settled comfortably in the Paediatric Emergency ward bed, where you and your child’s privacy is respected throughout the procedure.
The medicine is added to the nebulization chamber.
The nebuliser mask is placed and secured around the child’s nose and mouth.
The nebuliser has to be held in an upright position to prevent spilling and promote better inhalation.
