Using a nebuliser won’t “cure” your chest problem.
Used correctly and with the appropriate prescription it can ease your symptoms.
If you suffer from COPD you may be prescribed bronchodilators during an exacerbation or regularly if your condition becomes more severe. Nebulisers can be used to deliver medications to help reduce the thickness of your phlegm making it easier to cough it out, or to deliver antibiotics if you have a bacterial infection. Other medications target the build up of mucus and if you suffer from Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis or other lung diseases you may require a complex combination on a daily basis. Asthma, however, is rarely treated routinely with a nebuliser as for most people using a reliever with a spacer is equally effective.
