i just need a bit of advice, i have had type two brittle asthma for about 4 years now. i had lung disease as a baby and it developed from that they say. i am on a range of medications and which swoop and change on a appointment to appointment basis. i am under a consultant at the royal hallamshire hospital at sheffield. i neb everyday 3 - 4 times with saline, salbutamol 5mg and atrovent 500mcg. i have a acute attack needing A + E about once every 2 - 3 months. i live in the middle of know where and it takes about 25 - 30 mins for the ambulance to arrive here. i have priority ambulance calls so they HAVE to send me one ASAP but that has not helped. Came out of ICU for the 4th time at the end of last month and my GP whats to push for me to have home O2. I have a pulse sats monitor at home and during an attack run at about 79 - 82%. i am a student nurse so i know what this means and how to cope with it, but i am look for some different opinions, maybe from someone with home 02, does it help? and is it worth looking in to?
hope ya all ok
