At the weekend my friends husband had a bad attack, she's only known him 2 yrs but apparently has never seen him that bad. Anyway, she rang the emergency dr's and told them she thought he needed a nubuliser. When she spoke to the dr he told her that they don't use nebulisers anymore but prefer to use stronger drugs with spacers as they think a nubuliser doesn't get to the places where they want it to go. Sounds a bit odd to me, i've never had a bad attack, had a nebuliser once at emergency dr (different area) but has anyone come across this before? I should point out that he was adament that he didn't need an ambulance (which is what my friend wanted to do)
I would have thought that a nebuliser was a very good thing to use in the case of a bad attack?
