Hi everyone, Last week 2am in the morning I had what may have been my first really bad chest infection could not breath and so wheezy and my Ventolin rescue inhaler that would normally work for me was doing nothing, it was scary and I had to phone for ambulance and they put a mask on me that seem to be spraying out like a mist into my mouth and after about 20mins I was fine and calmed down.
I now know this was called a nebuliser has I just thought it was oxygen they were giving me but it made me feel much better at the time and just wanted to know if you can buy these nebulisers for myself for any future chest infections I may have.
Also do some of you sometimes have to use them and what do you think of them or are they just what ambulance crew have for a emergency.
I do know that I should have started my emergency pack of antibiotics and prednisolone 5mg sooner but this chest infection just hit me out of the blue in the night that I thought was just a mild cold.
Sorry to be a pain but if I could just have your thoughts and experience (if any) with these nebulisers.
Many thanks & best wishes
