Children's activities can be frequently disrupted by respiratory infections. Did you know that children can have up to 8 respiratory infections per year?1 These infections affect nose and throat, also called upper airways, but can also be located deeper into the lower airways and into the lungs.
Nebulizers transform liquid medication into small droplets (aerosol) that can be inhaled. Inhalation can allow the medication start acting faster than taking pills or injections.2,3
For an inhaled medication to be most effective it should be targeted directly to the area that needs to be treated. To reach different target areas of the airway tract (for example upper and lower airways) a different droplet size of the medication is needed.2
Most regular nebulizers target medication delivery to the lower airways. This means that they are not optimized for treating the upper airways, where children often develop infections.4
The OMRON A3 Complete is a fast and effective adjustable nebulizer that can deliver medication in less than 5 minutes.5
Thanks to its unique 3-in-1 nebulization kit this innovative nebulizer can be used to treat upper airway infections such as common colds and rhinitis, and lower airway infections such as bronchiolitis, as well as other respiratory diseases such as asthma.
The OMRON A3 Complete can be used with a variety of prescription and non-prescription medication, including isotonic or hypertonic saline solution for the treatment of respiratory infections.
