A nebulizer is a piece of equipment used to assist breathing in the case that the lung is being affected with diseases such as asthma, cystic fibrosis and other respiratory conditions. The market for nebulizers typically corresponds to the delivery of asthma medications to anyone who has difficulty using a standard asthma inhaler, particularly infants and small children.

Generally there are two types of nebulizers, either an “atomizer jet” or an “ultrasonic” version. The atomizer jet version is more commonly known as a “compressor nebulizer” and is the standard option available to the market.
Compressor nebulizers function through using an aerosol compressor to vaporize droplets of medication. These compressors are effective in delivering formulations that cannot be delivered with pressurized metered-dose inhalers (pMDIs) and dry powder inhalers (DPIs), for instance, antibiotics, mucolytics, liposomal formulations and recombinant products.
On the other hand, jet nebulizers can be difficult to use because of their need for compressed gas and additional tubing
Ultrasonic nebulizers incorporate a piezoelectric crystal vibrating at high frequencies in order to produce aerosol. They are divided into two categories: large-volume ultrasonic nebulizers and small-volume ultrasonic nebulizers.
Whereas large-volume ultrasonic nebulizers are most commonly used to deliver hypertonic saline for sputum induction, small-volume ultrasonic nebulizers are used for delivery of inhaled medications. Ultrasonic nebulizers have many limitations compared to jet nebulizers.
For instance, they have large residual volumes, an inability to aerosolize viscous solutions and degradation of heat-sensitive materials. Therefore, they should not be used with suspensions and proteins
