We had a couple of computer technological hitches recently which served to remind us just how some of you feel when confronted by the small portable nebulisers.
All those elements we take for granted, mesh cap technology, lithium battery, dual voltage, not to mention all those leads, wires and tiny buttons. Words and practices that after a while have just become second nature for us just as checking your mirror or changing gear when you drive may be for you.
So if you are thinking of investing in a small portable travel nebuliser don’t be put off. Over the years we have had feedback from so many customers who, with advice on which nebuliser would be most suitable for their needs, a small amount of patient explanation regarding assembly and care and a little practice before setting out, have discovered a whole new lease of life or added an extra dimension to their day.
If you are thinking that small portable nebulisers are a little fiddly? Are they are worth investing the money and possibly the time needed to become familiar? I can assure you that for very many of our customers the overwhelming answer is YES and with a little patience operating a portable nebuliser can become as easy as operating your mains nebuliser.

Despite the weather trying to dampen our spirits this has to be seen as good news and,
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate The British Lung Foundation and Asthma U.K., who have both this week been celebrating victory, with the welcomed announcement of the Governments, National Outcomes Strategy to tackle Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Asthma, which hopefully in the future has the potential to halve hospital admissions from these medical conditions.
They have both been campaigning for many years to get the COPD and Asthma Outcomes Strategy published.
Every seven minutes someone with asthma is admitted to hospital, and asthma costs the NHS more than £1billion per year and BLF research shows that there are 3.7 million people suffering with COPD which is the second highest reason for emergency hospital admission across the country. Eight million people across the UK. suffer with lung disease.
The National Outcomes Strategy for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Asthma in England recommends that patients should have a prompt and accurate diagnosis, standardised care across the country, shared decision-making regarding their treatment and the ongoing support to manage their condition themselves.
There is still a great deal to do to make sure that patients receive the improved outcomes set out in this strategy especially at a time of budget cuts but maybe the sun is starting to come out after all.

What is a blog?
A Blog can be a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.
A blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.
With the Evergreen blog we aim provide a little of all of the above. Primarily related to nebulisers but also keeping you up to date with news from our kindred spirits who can help you to access the independent advice you need on all respiratory conditions.
We welcome any input from you personally, be it a reflection of how your chest condition affects your life, a link to a a blog, forum or website you feel will be of interest to others or just a charming little ditty.
We strive, through our many links, to bring resources together which will help you move forward. Hints and tips ranging from choosing the right nebuliser for you or your family member, understanding just what is available and what you can expect from each unit, to the care and maintenance.
By linking together the information surrounding nebulisers as well as exploding a few myths we hope to help you achieve the best therapy possible and at the same time enable you to continue to live your life as independently as possible.
In gathering together news from manufactures, evidence based research as well as your own personal experiences, our ambition is to present well rounded, factual and practical information which enables you to make an informed choice when purchasing your nebuliser.
In simple terms, a blog is a website, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. We hope you find the stuff we write useful and beneficial If you feel you have any hints tips or ideas that can help people along the way please feel free to join in.
