To ensure that the drug or physiological saline solution reaches the site of action, it is nebulised into tiny droplets: the aerosol aerosol
An aerosol is a colloid of fine solid particles or liquid droplets, in air or another gas. .
The substances can then be directly absorbed via the mucous membranes of the upper or lower airways. Where they actually arrive and how they work depends on factors such as their physical size.
The larger droplets are already absorbed within the upper airways: in the mouth or throat, the larynx or the nose, depending on the inhalation technique used.
Smaller droplets on the other hand are able to reach the lower airways.
For targeted treatment of the lower airways it is important to use a droplet spectrum which is suited to the age group of the patient and the required target area in the body. In children and infants for example, the airways are not as wide and call for a finer droplet spectrum than the airways tract of adults.
Some drugs should ideally be directed to the peripheral areas of the lung, while others need to be deposited centrally.
The PARI LC SPRINT Nebulisers are equipped with various nozzle inserts designed to produce different droplet spectrums and represents a solution that caters to the individual needs of patients.
To supply the upper airways (pharynx, larynx and trachea) with drugs at the best, particularly large aerosol aerosol

Croup (or laryngotracheobronchitis) is a respiratory condition that is usually triggered by an acute viral infection of the upper airway. The infection leads to swelling inside the throat, which interferes with normal breathing and produces the classical symptoms of a "barking" cough, stridor, and hoarseness. , Laryngitis Laryngitis
Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx. and Pharyngitis Pharyngitis
It is an inflammation of the throat. .
Tiny droplets for the peripheral area of the lung, or for babies (premature infants upwards).
Included in the PARI LC SPRINT BABY Nebuliser and the PARI LC SPRINT STAR Nebuliser and the PARI BOY SX set (in addition to the blue insert). Designed specifically with COPD in mind to reach the finest structures of the lung.
