Nublizer filter

Nublizer filter

Hello I'm foxy79 I would like to say I just bein in hospital yesterday for a new antibiotics called colomicine and thus you can use via nublizer I'm on sulbutmol but wasn't working but I was given 4 filters to change and when I looked at my old one it had layers of dust made it like a brick it's disgusting I don't have the words for it I didn't even know about the filter and know it made a big difference please check yours and change them every few months there's it is if you don't have any you can get them from physiotherapy or your clinic but please change them and you will see the difference thanks

Good advice Foxy. It really does make a difference to the speed. Our hospital equipment pool now put 4 spare filters in our annual change of nebuliser.

Hi Foxy, good to see you and thanks for the reminder. I changed Petes nebuliser filter a short time ago and it was just as you described.

I will be ordering future filters online as Pete no longer goes to the Royal Brompton hospital. Easy to do though.

Take care xxxxx
