Apologies in advance for he essay!
I need to buy a portable nebuliser so I can continue my job. I'm lucky in that the local hospital provides me with one for use in this country but unfortunately you have to book one of the 'holiday' nebs ages in advance which isn't much use when I need to leave at short notice to go out of the country. Hospital has recommended one but their idea of portable and mine are very different, especially as I want to be able to go camping aswell this year and there often is no electric supply.
Does anyone use the Omron microair NE-22 (think this is right) to neb pulmicort and salbutamol/atrovent? This looked great as it can be run off AA batteries. I phoned Omron who said it should be OK but the steroid could cause the mesh to block faster. Not sure if I trust them as normally they haven't had to rely on them!. I would only be using it possibly a maximum of 3 weeks a year as I intend to use my other one whilst in the UK. Would be very interested to hear from anyone who has actually used it as normally pulmicort has to be put through a compressor type nebuliser and be used with a vent stream mouth part.
