Is nebulization treatment more harmful than infusion? Can a child be treated with nebulization?

During the high incidence of colds, the pediatric clinic is overcrowded every day. Sometimes it is really distressing to see the children coughing "earth-shaking" and flushing their faces.
Sometimes, doctors recommend aerosol inhalation for treatment.
Aerosol inhalation was first known to us, and it was used by asthma patients. So when it comes to "aerosolization treatment", the first reaction of many parents is: How can children be so serious that they still need to be aerosolized?
In fact, atomized inhalation is now not only used to treat asthma. It has a certain effect on many respiratory diseases such as laryngitis, bronchitis, bronchitis and pneumonia caused by various reasons, and the advantages are also obvious:
Nebulized inhalation therapy, convenient operation, local medication, direct effect.
Technological upgrades have allowed more and more types of medicines that can be atomized, and their safety has also become higher. Antibiotics, hormones, and drugs that help dilute sputum are all available in aerosol formulations.

But parents still have a lot of doubts, we will now analyze the working principles of the following two methods

1. Intravenous fluids
Intravenous infusion is a treatment method in which a large amount of fluids, electrolytes, drugs, etc. are infused into the body through a vein.
It can be said that while intravenous fluids treat the disease, they also open up the body's originally closed vascular system.
This means that some foreign objects (such as additives mixed in the industrial preparation process, bacterial remains, etc.) will enter the child's veins along with the input liquid.
These foreign bodies can become an undesirable stimulus for children, especially children who are prone to allergies, they are likely to have infusion reactions, such as high fever, chills and other abnormal reactions.

2. Nebulized inhalation therapy
The specific method of nebulization is: with the help of the nebulizer mask the fast flowing airflow in the nebulizer will "beat" the medicine into tiny droplets, allowing the child to breathe in the medicine to the corresponding part to achieve the purpose of treatment .
The human respiratory system itself is connected to the outside world, so we can understand it this way: atomization is to make full use of the openness of the respiratory system, adding some liquid or medicine to the air that the child breathes to achieve the effect of alleviating the disease.
Obviously, it can be seen that, on the one hand, nebulization does not affect the child's normal respiratory system function, on the other hand, it will not affect the child's closed system like intravenous infusion.
