Hi all. Hope evryone's well.
Just a quick question. We got Holly's nebuliser a while back from cons so we could neb budesonide and salbutamol. I'm obviously very clear on the budesonide in that its twice a day but I was never given clear guidance on the salbutamol.
Up to now I've been using my common sense and if she's not able to take her inhaler through her spacer I've been giving her the salbutamol through the neb instaed. She's got a cold just now though and her neb use is much higher. I've been using 4 or 5 in 24 hours. Phoned cons this morning but couldn't get him. Phoned doctors instea and they said just use as and when required.
Do I just treat the neb like I would use the 10 puffs and start to worry if they don't last the full four hours or am I using too much just now.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
P.s Holly's 6 and been diagnosed for a few years now although rarely has good control.
Decided to edit this as on readin it back it looked as though I was looking for immediate advice. I'm actually just querying what others who have home nebs have been advised. Obviously I know the protocol if the inhaler andnebs aren't working or in the event of an attack.
Thought I should clear that up
