There appears to be a fair amount of conjecture amongst the COPD medical fraternity as to the merits or otherwise of nebulising. They accept that there are occasions when, in the case of asthmatics when nebulising medication is beneficial, especially when the sufferer is gasping for breath and unable to use a MDI. For my part as a Stage 4 Copder, I have found that nebulising Atrovent or Ventolin provides very little, if any, relief. What has been the experience of others?
