1 month ago my doctor switched me to Ultibro, immediately I had relief in my chest and was able to breathe deeper than I had in a long time. I had been on Spiriva, Advair, and Ventolin for a couple of years, some days it was hard to breath.
I am also taking some chinese medicine for lung disease, and my doctor said that the Ultibro will work well with it. Since taking Ultibro I have not used my Ventolin at all.
I would just like to know if anyone else has used Ultibro… read more

I have a concentrator at home that I use at 4L when doing my housework, laundry, etc. I have also been using as I wake up in the am as get ready for work ... find it was easier to get myself ready without dealing with out of breaths. Now the oxygen guy dropped off a PULSE tank - about 12-15" high. I asked for a smaller one and he did bring me a pretty small one. My question is: I was never informed the difference from oxygen vs pulse. Since I got the PULSE tank, was using it to get to my car in… read more
