Indications for inhalation

Indications for inhalation

Inhalation therapy is a tried-and-tested therapy for chronic respiratory diseases and is becoming an increasingly common treatment for colds.

With inhalation for your airways

The therapeutic uses of inhalation are varied and range from the prevention and treatment of colds to the treatment of severe respiratory diseases.

  • Inhalation with saline solutions regulates the moisture content of the airways and helps your lungs clean themselves.
  • Inhalation therapy is popular with people working in the speaking professions, with athletes and singers.
  • Therapy of cystic fibrosis, COPD, asthma, chronic bronchitis and sinusitis.

Working hard for your airways

One advantage of inhalation therapy with a nebuliser from PARI is that the saline solution or the medication can start working directly at the site of the illness because it doesn’t have to pass through the stomach. This is helpful: To prevent colds, or if you already have a cold, you can inhale an isotonic saline solution, such as the PARI NaCl 0,9% Inhalation Solution for example. The indications for inhalation are, however, varied. For example, in particular patients with serious diseases like cystic fibrosis, asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis and sinusitis inhale saline solutions and medication solutions specifically prescribed by the doctor.

Inhalation – relief for the vocal cords

Have you ever experienced dry vocal cords? Dry vocal cords are an enormous problem, not only for patients with severe respiratory diseases. Teachers, singers, call centre staff, actors and trainers who all have to use their voices extensively at work often have scratchy voices, a dry cough and are more susceptible to colds. Inhalation therapy with an isotonic saline solution, such as the PARI NaCl 0,9% Inhalation Solution can help the vocal cords to recover and can prevent diseases. Isotonic saline solutions, also called physiological saline solutions, are designed to match the salt content of our bodily fluids. 

Inhalation - gaining popularity among parents with young children

Inhalation of isotonic and slightly hypertonic saline solutions (higher salt content) can be used even for infants and preschoolers. Because children get a lot of colds and coughs. Saline solutions soothe your child’s airways, cleanse and calm the mucous membranes and can, depending on the salt content, liquefy mucus and make it easier to expel. If your child has to inhale medications, only very small doses are needed compared to taking tablets because inhalation therapy acts locally and directly in the bronchial tubes. For the small airways of children, the small droplets, as produced, for example, by the PARI BOY Junior with the PARI LC SPRINT Junior Nebuliser are especially beneficial for inhalation.
