Nebulizers and Pandemic Viruses
Using a nebulizer to administer medications to patients suffering from the flu or any type of pandemic virus may not be as safe and healthy as it may seem. Using nebulizers are a great way to administer medications to patients suffering respiratory illness, but due to the fact that nebulizers do not contain the virus or germs it can cause the illness spread faster to another person. When it comes to the flu and other pandemic illnesses, such as the swine flu, it is probably a good idea to take medications orally instead of through the use of a nebulizer. If you have questions or concerns it is best to speak with your doctor in order to find the treatment that is best for you.
