Abstract


Modifications of  nebulizer compressor in this study were made and can be used to solve problems in the treatment of asthma therapy. Asthma is a symptom that is caused by abnormalities of the respiratory tract, causing increased sensitivity to environmental stimuli. Symptoms are often seen in people with asthma usually is cold / sneezing, coughing, itchy throat. Nebulizer is a device used in the treatment of asthma. This tool can transform the drug particles from a liquid into a very fine grains (steam). Because the drug is converted into a gas (steam), the drug is easier to be absorbed so that the effects of the drug seem faster than oral medications. Overall the nebulizer has worked and the functioning properly fit the desired time and the limits of medicine. The output voltage sensor of potions detector around 0.726 to 1.221 volts with a range of drug volumes 1-6 cc. Overall the percentage of error in testing time is between 6:49%. The average time required for evaporation of the drug in 1 cc of liquid drug is approximately 638.86 seconds.
