Who needs a nebuliser?Nebulisers can treat a variety of respiratory conditions including asthma, cystic fibrosis, emphysema, and COPD.

A doctor will prescribe a nebuliser when you are experiencing difficulty using metered-dose inhalers, like holding your breath long enough or if your respiratory muscles are too weak to use an inhaler effectively.Often, doctors will prescribe infants and children medicines that are best delivered through a nebuliser to ease the breathing problems.A nebuliser is also part of the treatment of acute respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis.

How does a nebuliser work?Nebulisers converts a liquid medicine into minuscule aerosol droplets.You inhale the aerosol droplets through your mouth and nose using a mouthpiece, a nosepiece or a mask.

In such cases, a mist may be easier to inhale than a spray.The main advantage of nebulisers is that there is no particular breathing technique required to effectively operate the nebuliser.

It is compact and lightweight.

Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways in the lungs.

Due to swelling of the airways with certain triggers, the muscle in the airway tightens and the airway lining becomes swollen and inflamed, producing sticky mucus.The airways lining of the lungs further become narrow.

Patients feel difficulty in breathing with other typical asthma symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing.

Generally, medication of asthma management is inhaled or breathes in, so it can go straight to your lungs where it is needed.

Some asthma medication in Australia comes in a dry powder device and a pressurised mist device.Spacers for Asthma TreatmentA spacer is a special device that looks like a clear tube and is attached to a metered-dose inhaler or puffer.

For the management of asthma symptoms, you can fire one puff of medication at a time into the spacer.

Between potentially false reports of the number of people infected to hearsay about masks being useless to wear and shunning every coughing individual near us, it’s not easy to understand how to protect ourselves.With that in mind, we want to clear up a few very important things when it comes to protecting ourselves with hand sanitisers and facemasks from the coronavirus.

Facemasks, on the other hand, will help reduce the risk of infecting others.

As we have mentioned in our previous article, the fear of the coronavirus has been exacerbated as time has gone on.

The reason for this is that the actual reported number of infections in Australia is still incredibly small.

That being said, the Australian government has advised that anyone in the healthcare sector who is interacting with sick individuals on a regular basis should have a mask to protect themselves.Our opinion on the matter is that if you would like to buy a mask, such as our P2 Masks, then you are welcome to do so.

When SARS was becoming more contagious it took a total of 8 months to develop whereas coronavirus has taken 9 weeks.However, chief medical officer, Brendan Murphy, has stated that there is “no community transmission” of the virus as of yet.
