In brief: Medication delivery

Pulmo aide is one brand of nebulizer.
There are many others. Patients with COPD benefit from medications delivered directly to the lung by an inhaler or a nebulizer. A nebulizer is useful for those who cannot use an inhaler effectively.

In brief: Decrease inflammatio

In order to decrease airway inflammation and relieve symptoms, patients with these disorders are often given steroid inhalers.
Nebuluzer is just one method to deliver the steroids directly to the airways to decrease inflammation. You can also use a steroid meter-dose inhaler. Rinse your mouth after dosing to prevent thrush, a fungal mouth infection.
