Anyone had a nebuliser at home from nhs?
I’m in fazakely hospital for 3 days because my oxygen levels have gone down. My SATs are normally 92-94 at rest, but they’ve been 88-90. Sometimes lower. I’ve been fighting hayfever (never had before seriously) since June and with the hot weather,thought that was the reason -also very breathless. Contacted the oxygen team- come in today for check. They wanted to give me intravenous antibiotics which meant hospital. This causes enormous complications at home because my husband suffers from anxiety badly. Anyway they persuaded me and family stepped in with husband. However real question, they gave me a nebuliser to use which really helped me cough up mucus. But at moment can’t have one for home. They have made an appointment for 4-6 weeks to discuss.
Anyone got any hints and do others find them useful. I can’t take carbocisteine as it makes my very lethargic. Some people have small travel ones and like them. Could you give of names of them found good. I’m going home in the next half hour - hurrah
Best wishes to all
