Aerosol therapy is a medical spa procedure that involves the administration of medication or therapeutic substances in the form of aerosols, which are inhaled by the patient. This method of treatment is commonly used in balneology to treat respiratory ailments and upper airway problems.
The aerosol therapy procedure involves the use of a special device called a nebuliser or inhaler, which converts liquid drugs into fine aerosol particles. These particles are then inhaled by the patient through a face mask or similar device. Aerosols penetrate the upper and lower airways, helping to calm inflammation, relieve symptoms and improve respiratory function.
The benefits of aerosol therapy include:
- Reducing inflammation: Aerosolised medicines can help reduce inflammation in the airways, soothing symptoms such as coughing, nasal congestion or throat irritation.
- Dilution of secretions: Aerosols can help thin and dilute airway secretions, making it easier to cough up and clear them.
- Opening the airway: Inhaling aerosols can help open the airway, making it easier to breathe and reducing the feeling of choking or difficulty breathing.
- Precise drug delivery: inhaled drugs reach the airways directly, specifically targeting respiratory conditions and minimising systemic side effects.
Aerosol therapy can be used to treat conditions such as bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis and other respiratory problems. It is important that this procedure is carried out under the supervision and prescription of a specialist doctor, who will determine the duration, frequency and types of medication suitable for each individual patient.
It should be noted that aerosol therapy can also be used for preventative purposes, to maintain health and relieve symptoms of chronic conditions. In order to benefit from this procedure, it is recommended to consult a doctor or go to a specialised spa with appropriate equipment and medical staff trained in aerosol administration.
Aerosol therapy is a non-invasive, safe and effective method of spa treatment that can bring relief and improvement for respiratory conditions and problems associated with the upper airways.
