Nebulizer treatments deliver liquid medications in a fine mist as you breathe through a mouthpiece or face mask. These devices are used to treat a variety of respiratory conditions and may be prescribed by our doctor for adult patients living with chronic lung disease or asthma. If you are experiencing difficulty using a metered-dose inhaler or are unable to hold your breath long enough for the inhaler to work, our Orlando nebulizer treatments can provide immediate relief. According to the National Institutes of Health, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common breathing disorder in 10% of the population over 75 years of age. While there is no cure for many chronic lung conditions, such as COPD or asthma, our treatment programs can provide inhaled medications that can help you breathe better.

If you have questions about any medication that uses a nebulizer machine, contact Delta Internal Medicine for assistance in scheduling a wellness exam.

Our Internist and professional staff help patients with education, training and delivery of the medical devices and supplies to support his or her respiratory treatments.
