How Does a Nebulizer Work?
A nebulizer is a small to medium-sized medical device that is equipped with an air compressor, allowing it to aerosolize medications. To aerosolize means to convert liquid to aerosol particles. These particles are in turn, directly inhaled by the patient through nasal cannula (also known as nasal prongs) or masks. Nebulizers are most famous among patients suffering from asthma and COPD, such as emphysema or bronchitis. However, nowadays, nebulization is also being considered as a mode of treatment for other conditions like the common colds, sinus infections or nasal allergies.

The Pill Disadvantage
There are a lot of trusted sinus infection medications in the market right now. Barely surprising, most of them are in the form of oral medications like syrups, pills or tablets. Oral medications are often the choice of doctors for most cases because swallowing a pill is convenient enough and rarely bothersome even for a young child. However, if a patient has swallowing problems, has impaired renal and/or hepatic function, or has another medical condition such as hypertension, oral medications may not be a good choice. The reason for this is that the active ingredient in oral medication affects not only the sinuses but the entire body as well.

Nasal Spray Drawback
Nasal sprays that contain corticosteroids and decongestants are among the most commonly prescribed sinusitis medications. They are very effective since the exact dose of medication is released every time the spray nozzle is triggered. The particles released are very fine mist, allowing effective absorption into the nasal and sinus cavities. Unfortunately, however, other essential drugs used for sinusitis treatment such antibiotics or anti-fungals are not available in forms of nasal sprays.

The Nebulizer Advantage
Nebulizer therapy can be considered as topical administration since the medicated mist is allowed to come in contact with the affected membranes through direct inhalation. Nebulization enables the drug to promptly take effect to obtain relief faster as compared to oral medication. With a nebulizer, the much smaller aerosol particles are able to penetrate much farther into the affected sinus cavities even when they are congested. SinusAero is one particular brand of nebulizer developed and produced by Sinus Dynamics. Unlike other nebulizers, SinusAero aerosolizes very efficiently, leaving no residual liquid. This is very important because this means the prescribed volume is entirely administered to the patient. There is no money or medication wasted. Of course, this translates to savings and effective therapy for the patient. This is just one feature that makes SinusAero stand-out. This nebulizer is also portable and lightweight.

Another SinusAero advantage is that, Sinus Dynamics, its manufacturer, also happened to be a compounding pharmacy. This means that Sinus Dynamics specializes in the preparation of customized medications fit for the needs of individual clients. They have a complete line of liquid medications including antibiotics, anti-fungal, decongestants and nasal corticosteroids ready for use with SinusAero and other nebulizers and medicated irrigators, also by Sinus Dynamics.
