Classic steam bath inhalation involves dissolving active substances in hot water. The active substances dissolved in the steam are taken up by the infected mucous membranes with a particularly long-lasting effect. The rising steam is inhaled through the mouth and nose and thus acts directly upon the infected airways. Nebulisation therapy can be used effectively even at the start of a cold.
In comparison to the use of a classic steam bath, modern nebulisers generate a consistently high quantity of extremely small particles of the active substances during operation, which penetrate deep into the airways. In steam baths, on the other hand, the generated particles are significantly larger and thus cannot penetrate as deeply into the airways. Steam baths also cool off quickly, which also has a fast, detrimental effect on the release of active substances.
The following effects can be achieved by nebuliser therapy

I want a replacement nebuliser for my Omron NEU22 which is now not manufactured.
I understand your IH50 nebuliser is very similar.
Who can I contact in NSW Australia regarding the IH50?
