Whether it is a medical nebulizer or a household nebulizer, there are many brands and models in the market at present, which is a bit confusing. What is the difference between an ultrasonic nebulizer and an air compressed nebulizer?
Ultrasonic nebulizer: Its working principle is the same as the humidifier commonly used in our home. Through the high-frequency resonance of the ultrasonic generator, the molecular structure of liquid water is broken up to produce natural and elegant water mist.
Compressor Nebulizer: Use a compressor to compress the filtered clean air into a strong airflow, which is sprayed out from the air nozzle, and the liquid in the medicine cup is charged, the medicine is vaporized, and then sprayed out from the mist outlet For mouth and nose inhalation, because the medicine mist particles are fine, it is easy to penetrate into the bronchioles and lungs through breathing, and the dosage is small, which is suitable for direct absorption by the human body and improves the curative effect. It is a purely physical way to vaporize the liquid medicine, which will not change its medicinal properties, and the utilization rate of the medicine is also high. There is almost no residual amount of medicine, which can minimize the waste of medicine.
Ultrasonic atomizer: The atomization rate of the ultrasonic atomizer is relatively large, and the relative atomized particles are also relatively large. Generally, the median particle size is about 9 microns. It cannot enter the lower respiratory tract, so it is generally suitable for upper respiratory tract treatment.
Compressor Nebulizer: The nebulized particles of the compression nebulizer are relatively small, and the median particle size is generally within 5 microns, which can be deposited in the lower respiratory tract, peripheral bronchi and alveoli. For children, you can choose a compressed nebulizer, because children's airways are relatively narrow.
Advantages and disadvantages:
Compressor Nebulizer: The compression nebulizer has a built-in high-efficiency oil-free piston compressor, no cooling water is required during nebulization, daily maintenance is free, the operation is relatively simple, and there is almost no drug residue, and the drug utilization rate is also low. very high.
Ultrasonic atomizer: low noise, large amount of atomized liquid. However, due to the large diameter of its atomized liquid particles, it is not easy to deposit into the lower respiratory tract, so it is only suitable for treating diseases of the upper respiratory tract such as rhinitis and laryngitis. For the lower respiratory tract such as bronchitis and pneumonia, the effect is poor.
