By the nebulizer IH 18, IH 21 & IH 26 compressed-air atomizers a compressor generates compressed air (approx. 0.8 - 1.45 bar).
The compressed air passes through the air hose and the nozzles in the atomizer to the inhalant. The stream of air blows particles out of the inhalant and mixes them with additional air in the atomizer. The inhalant is fed to the patient through a mask or a mouthpiece.
