A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

Nebulizers don’t cut it with me. I hate doing it and then get no effect. So I don’t use it which was a constant frustration to the head of my pulmonary rehab team

Nebulizer And Supplies
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, my doctor told me to buy a nebulizer? Not sure what to buy and do I need extra supplies besides the medication? Any advice would be appreciated they have so many different ones to choose from. On Amazon it shows people bought paroxcide and some kind of saleine solutions. Is that something I need also?
Thank you

Nebulizer Use
A MyCOPDTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi,

Recently diagnosed with emphysema.

I am going to start using a nebulizer, can anyone who uses one of these let me know which substances you use in yours and how effective they think they are?
Also - can you mix chemicals in them or use them one at a time?

Thanks​
