I have noticed several terms that I am not familiar with. I would like to know what trilogy machine is and a turbo chamber

and something called a flutter? I also learn names of different meds and inhalers. You can learn a lot just by reading the questions and answers

The Triliogy is a non-invasive ventilator, often prescribed for people who have problems with CO2 retention. It can be closely calibrated to the user and is a much better choice than a bi-pap which is often used for the same thing. Debbie is right that if you google those terms you will get pictures and descriptions.

Hi Janden. The "flutter" devices are used with breathing exrcises to help loosen mucus buildup in the upper chest. I use the Aerobika unit, but many others do exist. Get your Doc to write an Rx for one, and you're good to go.
Here's how it works:

Hello Janden. Remember, the inhalers have the same types of meds as used in the nebulizer. The main difference is the fast-acting nature of the liquid meds, but short duration. (Must repeat regularly and on schedule. Very important!)
The aerosol inhalers take a bit to give any relief, but convenient. All powders are only designed for long-term (24hr) use. You're already using both.
Some want to switch because the home nebulizer seems restrictive and time consuming. They also make portable units you can take with you if those meds give you the most relief. Works in car or AC outlet. Ask your Doc for a script and you'll be good to go! Easily found at online medical suppliers.

The only Trelegy I know of is a inhaler that came out not too long ago. Hearing good things about it. I am currently using Symbicort and Spiriva Respimat both are meds for COPD. In the past I have used Bevespi, Stiolto Respimat, Advair and Spriva Handihaler (This is the old one).
