People with lung conditions often rely on certain medications to help treat these diseases or alleviate symptoms. Oftentimes, a doctor will prescribe a nebulizer for the patient to use, making the medications easier to inhale. In order to receive the medication in this form, a patient normally uses a nebulizer mask.
A nebulizer mask is usually made out of rubber or clear vinyl. It consists of a mask that fits over the patient's nose and an adjustable elastic strap that fits around the head to keep themask in place. Pediatric nebulizer masks for children also come in a variety of character shapes, such as dinosaurs or fish, to make children more comfortable using them
