Here are the general steps on how to use a nebulizer for kids:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

  2. Assemble the nebulizer according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  3. Measure the prescribed amount of medication and pour it into the nebulizer cup.

  4. Make sure the child is sitting in a comfortable position, and attach the mouthpiece or mask to the nebulizer.

  5. If using a mask, make sure it fits snugly over the child's nose and mouth.

  6. Instruct the child to breathe normally through the mouthpiece or mask, and turn on the nebulizer.

  7. Encourage the child to take slow, deep breaths to inhale the medication.

  8. The nebulizer should be used until all the medication has been inhaled, which typically takes 10 to 15 minutes.

  9. Turn off the nebulizer and remove the mouthpiece or mask.

  10. Rinse the nebulizer cup and mouthpiece or mask with warm water, and let them air dry.
