What is Nebulizer Treatment in Tarpon Springs and Why Would You Need It?

You’ve heard the word nebulizer, but do you know what it is, what it does, and why you might need it? Nebulizers are inhaler devices that spritz a fine mist of liquid that’s a combination of medication and oxygen. You would need nebulizer treatment in Tarpon Springs if, for example, you battled asthma, severe pneumonia, or other illnesses and ailments that prevented your lungs from drawing in enough oxygen. Covid has been the most recent illness that might require some people to need a nebulizer.

Nebulizers operate independently and push aerosol spritzes through someone’s nasal cavities and lungs. At the same time, a classic inhaler requires the person to inhale to get a dose of medication and oxygen actively. The nebulizer enables someone with a severe illness to breathe like normal and still get their needs.

For beginners or severely sick persons, nebulizers are used in hospitals and medical clinics, like Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic. However, take-home nebulizers are available for persons with chronic illnesses, like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and asthma. The take-home option is popular for children and infants with chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, and (very rarely) pediatric emphysema.

How Often Would You Need Nebulizer Treatment at a Medical Clinic?

How often you would need nebulizer treatments is dependent on the severity of your symptoms and your type of illness.

On average, adults and children 12 years of age and older would need nebulizer treatments 4 to 5 times per day. Children under 12 but older than two would need nebulizer treatment 3 to 4 times per day. Nebulizer treatment for children under the age of 2 would be closely monitored and determined differently on a case-to-case basis.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
