Portable neb or not?

Took my nebuliser machine back to the hospital for a service.Been thinking of getting a portable one so I asked the tech guys,those who do the full lung function test in the big plastic box. After a bit of research the main man suggested just getting an inverter for the car battery and using the one they had just given me .£21.00 on eBay I know it will always work so I,m sorted.Other news....Steroids not made any difference so no gym tomorrow back to see gp instead.Have a good weekend everybody! :D

  • Hi farmer D.

    How are you?

    I have two plug in at home nebs and

    I had a portable omron battery or mains powered.

    I lost it but recently bought another.

    Now I wanted battery n mains because sometimes me and some friends go out in the country. Or just out and about .

    So thats why I use that.

    However I don't go far from home. I always carry it or in carers car we have adaptors car and main lead plus spare batteries.

    As back up.

    That way if I choose to stay a while at freinds or am out for longer than planned I have cover.


  • Hi Tigger,I like my creature comforts so I,m never far from an electric socket or a car.It was the difference in price that shocked me when I looked online.One the same make as my hospital one was£300.00 and an other from Maplin,s £24.00 but the tech guy did.nt rate any of those so my inverter ,ll do me fine.I,m still really struggling to breath so back to gp tomorrow.Cheers D.

  • I bought the Maplins one about 18 months ago and it is absolutely brilliant...not a moments bother. I then paid extra for the battery to give me independence and that too has been great. So light and easy to carry around too in it's own little bag.Faultless.

  • That sounds quite cool?

    Take care


  • Hello Farmer D,

    I don't know if this is of any help as you seem to be sorted nebuliser wise, but I have a battery operated Omron Microair U22 which is small enough to fit in a pocket. You can get a mains adaptor for it as well.

    I got mine from Evergreen Nebulisers on line for £79. I find it really useful and it's totally silent. It does 'eat' batteries though.

    I do hope you feel better soon,


  • What a lifesaver this little nebuliser was for me. I took it to New York. So light and portable and inconspicuous!

  • Thanks Annie,the silent bit sounds very appealing.D.

  • Yes i have portable neb i bought my self from Evergreens. Its a microair. Battery recharble plugs in car ..plus mains. Couldnt be without it. I caan put it in handbag and its guiet as welll. Google Evergreens. There are guite a few on there and service fantastic. Really helpfull and next day delivery. He said to me they realise people want nebs now ...not next week. All at no extra cost. A portable one opened up a whole new life. !!!
