Nebulisation with our Beurer nebulisers

Nebulisers are an important aid for easing respiratory diseases. They help you alleviate breathing difficulties by bringing medication directly into the airways. In addition to medication, nebulisers can also be used with saline solutions or essential oils. Nebulisers are noticeably effective in alleviating symptoms of asthma, COPD and other respiratory diseases.

How does nebulisation work?

To use the nebulisers, fill the medication container with the appropriate agent or medication prescribed by your doctor. After completely assembling the device, either take the mouthpiece or place the mask over your mouth and nose, and switch the nebuliser on. Then start breathing evenly and deeply until the agent in the medication container is empty. The most effective sitting position during nebulisation is sitting upright.

During nebulisation, the added agent is conveyed into the airways. It is reliably transported into the bronchi or lungs, upper and lower airways. Nebulisers are designed to break down the medication into fine particles that can be easily inhaled. The finer the particles, the deeper the particles can enter into the lower airways and lungs.

What nebulisation technologies are available from Beurer?

Choosing the right nebuliser for you depends on your needs. Important parameters when deciding are the size of the individual particles and the nebulisation rate. The average size of the individual particles in all Beurer nebulisers is below the necessary value, meaning a high proportion of the particles can be breathed in. A short inhalation time is achieved through a high nebulisation rate, although this also depends on the medication and the respective technology.

Compressed-air technology

The compressed air generated by the compressor passes into the atomiser via an air hose. Inside the atomiser, the mixture of air and inhalant is atomised into tiny particles through a nozzle. The patient breathes in the active ingredients using a mouthpiece or a mask.

Beurer compressed-air technology products are characterised by a high nebulisation rate and therefore have a relatively short inhalation time. Another advantage is that this technology allows a small particle size (MMAD) to be achieved, especially with AC compressor nebulisers.

Vibrating membrane technology

The atomisation of the medication is achieved through the oscillation of a membrane that has very fine pores. This generates particles – also called the aerosol – which the patient can then breathe in using a mask or mouthpiece.

This technology is very quiet, requires little power (can also be powered by batteries) and the Beurer products with this technology are extremely well suited for children or, due to their size, also for travel.

Ultrasonic technology

Ultrasonic technology causes the inhalant to oscillate in the water – used as the transmission medium – which enables release of the particles. The active substances are then channelled towards the patient by means of a mask or a mouthpiece.

The ultrasonic technology is characterised by quiet operation.

What are the advantages of inhalation with a nebuliser?

  • The particles of the active substance act directly at the site of the illness
  • It increases the moisture content of the mucous membranes and strengthens the immune system
  • It supports the self-cleaning function of the airways
  • It alleviates swelling and inflammation of the bronchial mucosa
  • Bronchial secretions become more liquid, thus easing their release
  • The side effects are usually lower than those of tablets and syrups
  • Many patients find the nebulisation to be pleasant


Important note

Nebulisers should only be used after consultation with your doctor. They will advise you on the selection, dosage and use of the nebulisation therapy that is suitable for you.
