Nebulizers are commonly used devices for inhalation treatment of various disorders. There are three main categories of medical nebulization technology: jet nebulizers, ultrasound nebulizer, and mesh nebulizer. The mesh nebulizers seem to be very promising since this technology should be able to produce aerosol with precisely determined particle size and is easy to use as well . Aerosol generated from the mesh nebulizer Aerogen Solo was measured in this work. Particle size distribution with a mass median of aerodynamic diameter (MMAD) was determined by two different methods.
