Blue inhalers at the supermarket


Reliever inhalers will be on sale in Supermarkets costing £7 which is just less than the current prescription charge. Sales of Salbutamol inhalers will be carefully monitored by an online G.P. service and the pharmacist.

So far reaction to this news appears to mixed. For those of you already prescribed this medication it will be a little less expensive, perhaps more convenient and more accessible, especially at times such as when you are away from home. The news does have a downside though and as most of our Kindred Spirits point out,

Relying on a nebuliser when you are feeling more breathless than usual and taking extra doses of nebulised relievers will only disguise and delay the need to seek medical adviceBritish Lung Foundation

We also see a slightly different cause for concern. One that prompted us to recently revisit the basics of nebuliser therapy Many people don’t always grasp just what a nebuliser or an inhaler actually doesThe news is calling them Asthma inhalers but many of you have been prescribed salbutamol for lots of other clinical conditions, and as we witness on an almost daily basis, many people believe that an inhaler or nebuliser will help cure a multitude of passing symptoms such as a cough, dry mouth, sneezes, wheezes, and all manner of upper respiratory infections as well as minor annoying tickles.

It will certainly be interesting to see what unfolds. Why not check out our Kindred Spirits and read their opinions on the subject.

Olympic Games London 2012


Just a quick note as I’m sure everyone has heard lots of news about preparations for the Olympic Games taking place in less than two weeks time.

We have had assurances from our courier that they have taken every step possible to minimise any disruption in our delivery service to those of you who live in areas that may be affected. Hopefully you will continue receive a prompt and efficient service as always.

Coincidentally we have had many more overseas visitors to this blog checking for information as to whether their nebuliser will operate on U.K. voltage. If you have friends, family or visitors coming over this summer it may be just worth a mention. European nebulisers should operate in the U.K. but for visitors who arrive from countries where the voltage is only 110v, unless they were purchased with a dual voltage facility, they won’t.


You can find more information on dual voltage nebulisers here


http://evergreennebulisers.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/dual-voltage-nebulisers.html 

It sounds simple but honestly it has been overlooked on so many occasions its worth a little forward planning, checking the nebuliser voltage and ensuring friends and family travel with sufficient medication and accessories, so even if the British weather doesn’t come good for London 2012 and the traffic gets a little frustrating you can all breathe easy

Nebuliser basics, who should have one?


With the pollen count on the rise and in some areas hospitals struggling to cope we thought it may an opportune moment to revisit the basics of nebuliser therapy.

A nebuliser is a powerful drug delivery system that should only be used if your G.P. or health professional has recommended that you do. Using a nebuliser during an acute episode of your chest condition at a clinic, in A&E or on a hospital ward doesn’t always mean that you will be a suitable candidate to have one at home

For those of you who do have a nebuliser at home it is important to have management plan agreed with your doctor or nurse so you know what to do if your condition gets worse.

Relying on a nebuliser when you are feeling more breathless than usual and taking extra doses of nebulised relievers will only disguise and delay the need to seek medical advice

Nebulisers will not work without medication and your health professional will prescribe those which will be most beneficial for you. The most commonly nebulised drugs are relievers such as Salbutamol but there are many others such as Saline, Steroids and Antibiotics. Some but not all medications may influence the choice of nebuliser you decide to buy and one size doesn't suit all to view our full range click HERE

Other factors to consider when choosing a nebuliser for use at home are how frequently you may be nebulising? How portable it needs to be? Is it easy to maintain and clean? Are accessories readily available? And for some of you it can be important that it is simple and easy to operate

There are many pages and clickable links throughout this blog, you can click HERE for frequently asked questions and answers and HERE to check out our website, which will provide more answers to all these questions as well as quick links to independent help and advice and if you are still unsure or confused you can call us on 01942 701210 or click HERE to email.
