With the clocks going back and everyone preparing to batten down the hatches, the high street has for a while been gathering in Christmas stock alongside Halloween and Fireworks. Possibly a little early but as you have no doubt gathered from previous posts on this blog our motto for nebulisers is be prepared too.
Christmas cards can be a great way to help raise awareness whilst helping to raise money for your favoured charity.
Why not choose some from those offered by our Kindred Spirits They have a wide range of festive designs and will spread a little Christmas cheer to.
With flu alerts, weather warnings, dark mornings and a general feeling that winter is well on its way, now would be a good time to give your nebuliser an MOT.
Has your nebuliser had its annual service? Some units need need to be serviced in order to provide you with an efficient therapy. You can call us on 01942 701210 or the manufacturer if you are not sure.
Have you changed the filters on your nebuliser. Your instruction manual will provide a guideline about how often this is required, common sense tells you that the more you nebulise the more frequently they will need to be changed.
If your unit has a rechargeable battery, discharge it and then recharge as per the instructions and remember never to store it unless it is fully charged.
And probably the most important thing to remember is tocheck yourSpares and Accessories. Medication chambers, Air tubes, Drive lines, Masks and Mouthpieces are a vital partof any nebuliser and need to becleaned, cared for and changed regularly.You can stock up by clicking HERE
We have had several calls recently from customers who have been using the same medication chambers for over two years. Although this adds up to value for money it can cause problems with repeated cross infection and after such a long time they are more than likely to stop functioning efficiently.
You can find a rough guideline to which type you may have, how to care for your accessories and how often they need changingHERE .
