Hi, very sorry that I can't help. Why don't you give the BLF helpline a call: 03000 030555 9-5 Mon-Fri . They will be able to give you some expert advice. P



'. . . In many, but not all, instances nebulisers offer little benefit over simple inhalers and may have significant adverse consequences. Careful assessment should therefore be made of individual response to nebulised therapy to identify those few patients who will obtain meaningful benefit from long-term treatment.'
