….Ever piled all your nebuliser type equipment in to one place?….
Meet this severe lunger’s cavalry. A kind of respiratory hoard, comprising a mish mash of various sizes of nebs and mouthpieces (and masks in various drawers!), and of course, the newest member of the anti-asthma cavalry of equipment, my Personal Oxygen Concentrator. (Please Mr Airsep, would you read and maybe reply to my email of last week!)
For info, I have the following:
Medix World Traveller Nebuliser
Pari Turbo Boy S Travel Nebuliser
Omron Micro Air pocket Nebuliser
Airsep Freestyle Portable Oxygen Concentrator
I am happy to give advice to anybody being prescribed a home nebuliser, as to which I feel is the best for certain aspects of treatment. My favourite neb is the Medix World Traveller, or as J affectionately calls it, my “big, blue toilet!” It is a very fast and powerful compressor neb and has proved great for the hypertonic saline, which takes about 15 mins to neb through.
I also use a P.E.P. device attached to the mouthpieces, and mentioned in my meds page above, but that’s another post. You can see this device on the mouthpiece above on the right of the P.O.C.-it looks taller than the rest.
Don’t worry, not all that lot comes on holiday with me. These days the neb of choice I take is the Pari (Yellow submarine) one. And Baby Omron goes in my purse. But of course the P.O.C. will be coming everywhere with me now. However, I can remember the times I have passed through LHR with the big blue toilet in my carry-on bag! Heavy!
….Look Out!, lungs, the medical mist, it’s a-coming to beat you!
