A New Era for Mesh Nebulisers

Nebulisers have been an important device for inhalation therapy since their invention in the 19th century. Throughout the years, different technologies have been developed with the goal of further improving the treatment of respiratory diseases. Today, new devices offer the possibility to generate innovative approaches, overcoming previous limitations and widening the use of nebulisers in areas that have not been explored yet.

The Evolution of Nebulisers

To depict a clearer picture of the evolution of nebulisers, it is essential to start with the invention of the jet nebulisers, which resulted in a massive breakthrough when they were first introduced as a medical device in the respiratory field. This event constituted itself as a pillar that opened a new chapter in the history of inhalation therapy and still has vast implications nowadays. About a century later, in the mid-20th, the ultrasonic nebulisers were introduced with their new features and advantages. The objective of developing this new device was to improve nebulisation experience. However, it was not until the appearance of mesh nebulisers, at the end of the 20th century, that a revolution among nebulisers occurred, catching the attention of professionals in the medical field thanks to the higher levels of efficiency of these devices. Moreover, mesh nebulisers have been proven to broaden the areas of application when compared to their predecessors.

Recommendations Sourcing Human Biospecimens


The foundations for protecting human research subjects come from the ethical principles surrounding the Belmont report : Respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. The use of human biospecimens in research supports these principles with legal and ethical regulations - the most important of which is permission.(1) This permission may come directly from the donor or granted by others with authorization to protect the interests of biospecimen donors.
