Looking at Search Results

In Ebsco Databases (MedLine, CINAHL, SportDiscus), you can read the abstract to understand what the article is about.  If it answers your research question, then you may want to pursue reading the entire article.

Article #2 - Only the word Nebulizer appears in the title, so it is unlikely that this would contain an answer to my question
