With handheld portable nebulizers you can now enjoy the freedom of being anywhere without having to worry about breathing problems. There are quite a few brands out there that you can go for, but from the consumer reports and research it comes out that there are only two which are the best ones. The handheld portable nebulizers actually offer great performance in spite of their tiny package. These nebulizers are have two sections, the compressor and nebulizer, which are built into a small handheld device. They can weigh anywhere from around four ounces to 4 pounds. Obviously, lighter the nebulizer the more expensive it is. Here I would like to bring to light two most popular and excellent brands that have found favor with customers all over America.
The Omron NE-U22v nebulizer: This handheld portable nebulizer is actually considered the best nebulizer on the market today. It uses two standard ‘AA’ batteries, It’s really so compact that it can be put in a pocket or purse with ease. Even kids can use it and carry it in a backpack. Even though it is small, it packs a punch as it creates dense fumes to penetrate the lungs. One great thing that consumers say about it is that this handheld portable nebulizer never wastes even a drop of medication. It can be used in any position, lying down, upright or even standing on one’s head. It also uses Vibrating Mesh Technology, so there is no noisy compressor. It is totally silent!. Absolutely no ‘vibration’. Perfect for school, work, camping, airplanes, or any environment where you want to take a discreet treatment without having to plug in.
MABISMist II Handheld Ultrasonic Nebulizer: This is another brand name that is quite well-known. This handheld portable nebulizer is also versatile as it can be taken anywhere and everywhere with ease. It is a Small Volume Nebulizer (SVN) that transforms liquid medications into an aerosol mist. It delivers fast and silent treatments within 6 minutes as it uses an advanced ultrasonic technology. However, it is a little heavier than the Omron nebulizer and a little cumbersome because of its bigger size.
There are many choices for the patient for handheld portable nebulizers which are powered by rechargeable batteries. If it makes it easier for the subject to take his breathing treatment with him which allows him to keep up with the regime, then a handheld portable nebulizer is preferable to a full-sized machine. Nebulizers by Mabis and Omron range from compact bedside nebulizers to fully portable nebulizers. Nebulizers by Omron and Mabis have stood the test of time and have always been an efficient and effective method of delivery in both preventive and acute aerosol delivery.
