Im sure my neb dependent friends would agree, that with nebulizer treatments being notorious time killers, incorporating some organization and convenience into the mix makes life just a little easier. For me this means neb stations in strategic locations throughout my house and in my vehicles. I even have a stand-by unit just for travel. 4 of my 5 nebs are battery powered portables, which of course is important in case the power in the house goes out.
My main unit is a 110 volt plug in compressor that Ive had for almost 20 years. Remarkably it’s still going strong, despite me never having changed the intake filter (oops).
It’s located next to my computer nitch and it’s there for a reason. Nebbing is boring and it takes time, so being able to multi task or have a diversion at hand is very important. I can’t tell you how many blog or facebook posts Ive written while nebbing. In fact, the only time I’m on my main computer is when Im nebbing.
At my main station I have all the various accessories, such as PF and FEV1 meters and pulse oxs. In addition to a stock pile of medication in all the nebbing stations, I also have the all important receptacle for “empties and twist tabs”, which we all know have a tendency to wind up all over the place.
I only this station once a day around midnight, but this location is super important because it’s only 12 inches from my bed and spares me the need to get up, walk across the room and fumble in the dark for a treatment.
