    The output of the drug and the particle size produced by various nebulisers were assessed, and sensible nebulisation times for sodium cromoglycate calculated. Three of the four nebuliser systems tested produced over 80% of total drug output within the first five minutes of nebulisation. We suggest that five minutes is an optimum nebulisation time for sodium cromoglycate using these nebuliser combinations.
