I started using a power breather a few days ago as pul rehab said they were ok and I'd bought it a while ago and never seemed to have enough 'puff' to use and wasn't sure if it would be doing more harm.
I am managing ok and have already turned it up a notch, I do feel able at the moment but have recently finished steroids and anti's so thought I'd srtike whilst I had a bit of 'oomph' and it will hopefully improve my walking capacity.
Has anyone else used them?
According to the instruction dvd, they are available on prescription but I had never heard or seen them before I purchased from the sunday paper BUT then again, until recently haven't been doc's much and apart from asthma nurse doing spirometry test yearly and a pul' rehab referral, I've had nothing from the Doc's and I was diagnosed in 2006. To Doc's credit, he did say that the rehab team had more time to spend with me than him.
