Aerosure Medic Respiratory device

This is my first post so apologies if this question has been asked before. Has anyone with COPD Emphysemia tried the above device? Would like to hear what others think of it as I'm thinking about buying one.

Hi Jom49 👋 I just read your post my spooning I would be careful & check with health care nhs or private proffesional to ensure the device is evidenced based as some company sell devices with evidence & can cause more harm than good don't take certain websites info as best practice . Good luck Bernadette x

Thanks Bernadette, I have spoken to my respiratory nurse but she had no information and suggested helpline at BLF they put me on to this Chat room to see if anyone had personal experience of the device.

I have had an aerosure medic device for several years. I find it really good when the mucus becomes really difficult to move. Because it has a motor it is easier to use than a standard type of flutter device. I have bronchiectasis, not COPD and so I hope that someone with COPD who uses one will be able to give you their experience.

Thanks for your reply littlepom. If nothing else I have learned about the 'flutter device' so will look that up.

Hi, I have had one for several years and I find it a great help, I use it most mornings and it helps me clear my chest. I have asthma and the mucus is very sticky, so I am grateful for the help it gives.

I have copd and use one on the odd occasion when I have a lot of mucous. It helps me to cough it up.
