Question for To all who work in a community health center:
When administering a nebulizer treatment in office, do you use nebulizer machines (i.e. the same compressors our patients have at home)? Or run a neb set up off of an air or oxygen tank?
In our busy pediatric office, we have several neb machines to use and only run off an oxygen tank when the patients oxygen level is low.
Unfortunately, in an acute exacerbation, when patients require >1 nebulizer treatment in a row, we have run these small machines for quite a while! As you can imagine, the motors don’t last long!
I am wondering what other are using to give nebulizer treatments in office?
