These products are offered to pediatricians and physicians across South Carolina and East Georgia, which are prescribed to affected children. We offer the latest in-home nebulizer equipment. If you feel your child may benefit, please inquire about our DME program.
Asthma is one of the most common chronic disorders in childhood, currently affecting an estimated 7.1 million children under 18. It’s blamed for over 10.5 million missed school days each year.
A nebulizer changes liquid medicine into fine droplets (in aerosol or mist form). These machines are available in a portable variety or powered by compressed air and plugged into an electrical outlet. Nebulizers treat the symptoms of conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and bronchitis. When medications like Ipratropium and Albuterol are used, these treatments can improve breathing by opening up bronchial tubes in the lungs.
