Word! Nebulizer

Nebulizer

Say: neh-byuh-lye-zur

A nebulizer may sound like a space gun, but you don't have to be on a spaceship to use it. A nebulizer is a machine that turns liquid medicine into a mist that can be breathed in. So it's a great way for people with asthma to get their medicine right where they need it — in their lungs. Lots of kids with asthma use nebulizers to help them breathe easier.
