Called them to being and forth they came.

A slide show depicting nebulizer use.
Nebulizers are used to treat asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and other conditions where inhaled medicines are indicated.
Nebulizers deliver a stream of medicated air to the lungs over a period of time.
Data are also limited on whether certain nebulizers and their masks are more effective than others and whether blow-by treatments area at all effective.
Nebulizers designed for use with oxygen or air require high flows of heliox to create aerosol in the respirable range.
This aerosol is not well characterized for standard nebulizers and the high flow of heliox is costly.

In science:

The Great Debate on the nature of nebulæ between Shapley and Curtis, took place on April, 26th 1920, with no clear winner.

From Messier to Abell: 200 years of science with galaxy clusters
In 1904 Easton150 noted an asymmetry in the distribution of the nebulæ with respect to the galactic plane, with an excess of nebulæ in the northern hemisphere.

From Messier to Abell: 200 years of science with galaxy clusters
In contrast to the growing dominant opinion, in 1936 Hubble233 described the distribution of nebulæ as “moderately uniform” and noted that “no organization on a scale larger than the great clusters” was definitely known.
From Messier to Abell: 200 years of science with galaxy clusters
Hubble also noted the “dominance of late typed among isolated nebulæ in the general field”.
From Messier to Abell: 200 years of science with galaxy clusters
It was only in 1923 that Reynolds372 pointed out the existence of many “globular or ovoid” nebulæ, distinctly different from spirals.
