Discover the Benefits of Nebulizer Treatments to Protect Your Airways
From working to living conditions, it’s safe to say the COVID pandemic has affected all aspects of our lives. Between face masks and avoiding crowded areas, our behaviour has been altered for the foreseeable future. Amid all the changes, one positive consequence has been the renewed focus put on the routine care of our respiratory system, a must when it comes to protecting yourself from foreign bodies like viruses and bacteria or even pollen and smoke. Simply put, you can strengthen your natural barrier from the comfort of your own home, which can go a long way in protecting you and your loved ones in the future.
Taking Care of Your Mucous Membrane
A great way to protect your airways is by using a nebulizer for daily saline inhalations, an effective treatment that has been shown to reduce viral infection by up to 66%. But how exactly does it work? The respiratory system is lined with something called a mucous membrane that, as its name suggests, secretes mucus that traps foreign bodies like viruses and bacteria in the nose and trachea before expelling them with the help of hairlike structures called cilia. However, cold or arid conditions tend to dry out the membrane, affecting its functionality and allowing intruders to multiply and cause disease.
Fortunately, there’s a simple element that has been known for centuries to heal and calm these effects on the respiratory tract: salty air. Daily saline inhalations help keep the membrane in good condition, providing an extra level of protection amid challenging climates.
The Benefits of Nebulized Saline Treatment
OMRON Nebulizers provide a reliable inhalation device for applying your daily saline treatment. By turning saline solution into a fine mist of droplets which travel through the respiratory system, they support self-cleaning and have a healing effect on the mucous membrane, allowing it to achieve its full potential as a natural protective barrier. Inhaling through OMRON nebulizers you deliver the isotonic saline solution (0.9%NaCl solution) directly to where humidification is needed: into your airways.
The pros of owning a device for daily saline inhalations are plenty. Besides being a completely natural treatment, it has no side effects. Furthermore, it can be used by people of all ages, meaning that anybody in your household can reap its benefits, from pregnant women and nursing mothers to small children and young adults.
In light of Covid 19 there's never been a better time to strengthen your respiratory system and it all starts with optimizing the natural protective function of your airways. Nebulized saline treatment is an effective and proven way of doing so, providing care for you and what you value most: your family.
