How to Choose Portable Nebulizers in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Check the Particle Size Is Between 1 and 5 µm
  2. Choose a Nebulisation Rate to Suit the Intended Patient
  3. Look for a Convenient Battery Type and Low Noise Emissions
  4. Opt for a Machine Under 300g With a Dosage Capacity of 6 - 8 ml

1. Choose a 1 to 5 µm Particle Size to Evenly Distribute the Medicine Throughout the Respiratory Tract

1. Choose a 1 to 5 µm Particle Size to Evenly Distribute the Medicine Throughout the Respiratory Tract
The particle size is the diameter of the particles that the machine produces. The size you choose will determine whether the particles are deposited in your upper or lower respiratory tract. 

Different sized particles will travel to different areas, so it's essential to choose the right size in order to administer the medicine correctly. The optimal particle size is 1 to 5 µm as anything smaller than this will not adhere to the walls of the respiratory tract, and anything larger is likely to remain in the upper tract and not treat the lower areas adequately.

Try some teas for colds to relieve minor sinus irritation. 

2. Consider a Low Nebulization Rate of up to 0.15 ml per Minute for Children, or 0.15 - 0.25 ml per Minute for General Use

2. Consider a Low Nebulization Rate of up to 0.15 ml per Minute for Children, or 0.15 - 0.25 ml per Minute for General Use

The nebulisation rate will determine the volume of medicine administered per minute. A lower nebulisation rate, up to around 0.15 ml per minute, is smoother and less intense, making it ideal for children or for soothing mild irritation.


Most adults or patients with severe conditions who need higher doses of medicine will benefit from a higher nebulisation rate. Rates between 0.15 and 0.25 ml per minute should be sufficient for most cases, but aim for something higher if you need stronger doses. 

3. Check the Battery Type and Noise Output to Ensure Your Nebulizer Can Be Powered and Used Anywhere

3. Check the Battery Type and Noise Output to Ensure Your Nebulizer Can Be Powered and Used Anywhere

Portable nebulisers depend heavily on batteries to keep them up and running while you're on the go. Many are powered by standard AA batteries, which are a convenient choice if you want something that's easily replaceable. Plus, you'll be able to keep a spare set with you. Inbuilt rechargeable batteries tend to last longer, but you'll need to make sure you have somewhere to charge the device if it dies while you're out.


The portability of your device will also be impacted by noise emissions. After all, you won't be able to use your nebuliser in public spaces or quiet areas if it emits huge levels of noise. Noise output is measured in decibels (dB) and nebulisers tend to range between 20 and 60 dB. For a quiet machine, you should look for the lowest number possible, but keep in mind that even 60 dB machines will only be as loud as an average electric toothbrush. 

Keep replacement batteries on hand in case of emergency.

4. Opt for a Lightweight Machine Under 300g With an Adequate Dosage Capacity of 6 - 8 ml

4. Opt for a Lightweight Machine Under 300g With an Adequate Dosage Capacity of 6 - 8 ml

The ideal machine will be as small and lightweight as possible, so that it won't be a burden to carry. Most portable nebulisers range between 100 and 300 grams, but anything below 200 g is considered lightweight. 


A compact machine is always preferable if you prioritise portability, but smaller nebulisers often come with smaller medicine tanks, too. If you only need to administer a few millilitres throughout the day, a 6 - 8 ml tank should be sufficient. However, for more prolonged or intensive use, opt for a tank with a 10 ml+ capacity. 

Add some essential oils to a facial steamer to clear your airways.
