My practice nurse has suggested i try breath actuated inhaler ,salbutamol 100mc.
any one use this?
Have used in the past both Ventolin and Ivor.
Useful if you have poor coordination, I find using a spacer just as effective, plus you can use normal tidal breathing, four breaths will deliver and empty chamber.
I have used easibreathe inhalers and now I use a fostairnexthaler They work by you breathing in the dosage. I find them easy to use. Apparently I wasn't using the normal puffer inhalers properly when I was first tried them so I was given the easi breathe type.
I found the ventolin blue inhaler next to useless, maybe i wasn't using it right
There are videos on the internet showing you how to use the inhalers correctly also your doctor or practice nurse is suppose to check you are using it correctly. X
I’ve been using it since December as the consultant thought I was breathing in too quickly with the old one. It’s very easy to use if you’re just feeling a bit short of breath, but at my last asthma check a few weeks ago the nurse changed me onto a spacer as she said I was having difficulty breathing in as my cough was very active. I do find the spacer more beneficial.
i use spacer at home, i won't use it outside.
No, I’m the same. I think that’s why I liked Easi-Breathe. I won’t use the spacer outside.
