Using Nebulizers For Newborns

Nebulization is a type of treatment that enables an individual to breathe in medicine as a fine mist using a nebulizer machine. Nebulizers are useful in treating certain respiratory conditions such as cold, cough, asthma, etc. The nebulizer turns the liquid  medicine into a fine mist so that the individual can breathe in the medicine easily. The machine comes with a mask or a mouthpiece connected via tube that assists in breathing.

Nebulizers are effective for inhaling medicine to clear the blocked airways. You can use the nebulizers in the following ways:

  • In case of an emergency wherein the individual is struggling to breathe & may require a high dosage of medicine.
  • In cases of severe conditions wherein the individual is unable to use inhalers such as an asthma attack.
  • In cases wherein the individual is struggling to use inhalers due to underlying health conditions such as arthritis.
  • To provide medication to newborn and toddlers.

 Since prescribing hard medicine is not a viable option, doctors often use the nebulizers for babies. They allow infants to take medication while still breathing normally. When a baby inhales a nebulizer mist, the drug might travel deep into their lungs, where it can assist them to relax a bit and breathe easily.

Nebulizers are a great alternative for kids who are experiencing trouble breathing due to a cough or cold, but do use the medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor and follow their recommendation.

A nebulizer, when used correctly, can help newborns breathe better by clearing congestion. If you are worried about the device’s safety, rest assured there are some good easy to use and operate nebulizer machines. With a little guidance you will be all set to use the machine. 

A doctor may recommend a nebulizer for a baby who has inflamed airways, shortness of breath, or any other breathing problem that could be caused by:

  • chronic respiratory conditions, such as asthma or cystic fibrosis
  • lung infections, such as pneumonia
  • severe allergic reactions

They may have symptoms such as

  • wheezing
  • coughing
  • shortness of breath
  • rapid breathing
  • chest pain
  • difficulty in breathing
  • slow recovery from bronchitis
