I've been told by RBH that 10 puffs ventolin via spacer is just as good as a neb. On thursday Sean was really struggling with a cold cough etc so i started two hourly puffers in the day and nebs at night as he sleeps through nebs. After discussion with resp nurse on fri i was asked to get him checked out at local hosp. He wasadmitted and same treatment continued. While there I was told by two docs that as he 'only 'needing inhalers he could go home, but it would be differnt if he needed nebs. Well to be honest I am so sick of hospitals at moment that I couldnt be bothered to argue so we came home on sat and i've been doing 2 hrly ever since as he not maintaining sats at night.
SO my question is: How can it be right to have 2 hrly vent inhaler for five days at home but not 2 hourly neb as that means u r iller?
If anyone could enlighten me i'd be grateful
