The procedure is used to produce aerosols delivered by ultrasonic equipment or compressor driven nebulizers.

    Indications for Aerosol Therapy:
    1. Retained secretions
    2. Delivery of medicines to airways.
    3. Humidification of inspired gas of patients with artificial airway.
    4. Sputum induction

Deposition of aerosols via the inhalation route is a type of topical administration with the delivery of high drug concentrations directly to the respiratory mucosa, its local therapeutic effects are optimized and systemic side effects are minimized. The onset of drug action and absorption is rapid because of the large surface of the lung. In addition, the action of gastric, intestinal, and hepatic enzymes is largely avoided.

This procedure requires no preparation and treatment time lasts 15 minutes. Walk-in patients with written request from a physician are entertained immediately.
