In brief: Nebulizer

The machine that can be used for asthma medicines is called a nebulizer.
It consists of an air compressor ( the box that is plugged into the wall) and the nebulizer ( this is where the medicine is placed).

In brief: Nebulizer?

A nebulizer is the machine that delivers an aerosol therapy to asthmatics, as well as other patients.
Many medications can be taken this way, including albuterol.
