In research and in clinical practice, the use of nebulizers is often an inconsistent undertaking. Many physicians lack a full understanding of the basic scientific principles of nebulizer therapy, and results published from many clinical studies are impossible to reproduce due to variations in nebulizer systems and usage. In an effort to standardize nebulizer treatment in clinical practice, Practical Handbook of Nebulizer Therapy provides hands-on guidance for frontline healthcare professionals Written for hospital doctors, GPs, nurses, respiratory physiotherapists, and respiratory technicians, this book includes chapters by expert physicians in respiratory medicine, as well as representatives from nebulizer equipment manufacturers and the pharmaceutical industry. The text focuses on three main areas: technical information, including theory, science, and quality control; clinical applications, including chapters on the use of these devices in individual conditions; and practical considerations such as maintenance, choice of device, and education. With a user-friendly format that allows quick access to specific aspects of nebulizer treatment, this book is a convenient reference for respiratory healthcare professionals.
