yesterday someone called PMR pete said an interesting comment that got me thinking. You can only have 8 puffs of salbutamol in 24 hour period. This is not true as I did explain but it just shows how we are all told very different information from our professionals. On the Asthma UK asthma plan it says when calling 999 to take ten puffs of your blue inhaler and if an ambulance does not arrive after fifteen minutes take another ten puffs of blue inhaler. If what PMRpete had said was true it would mean Asthma UK was telling people to overdose. Please people check out information you are given with Asthma UK do not just trust your professionals. Yesterday I had to check out a medical professional and it turned out they were incorrect.
Blue (salbutamol) inhalers you can take ten puffs every four hours that is sixty puffs in a twenty four hour period. If this is not working go to hospital and they can check you out! Hospitals prefer to see you alive and struggling than dead! Hospitals can then prescribe you higher blue (salbutamol) inhaler doses and monitor you whilst you begin to recover. Whilst on more than sixty puffs a day you need monitoring by doctors and nurses! You can only be monitored at a hospital! This information is all in an Asthma UK Asthma Plan I have just put the maths into words as some people need it!
