Portable Nebuliser - Maplin- £29.99

Cant believe how cheap this portable nebuliser is £29.99!! i bought the same model for £70(circa) in april!!! wish i had known!

wouldnt recomend for everyday use. but good for holidays etc. note that battery comes seperately though its not to expensive! maybe worth shopping around if you want a realy bargin on the battery. but it can plug straight into mains. I believe this is a slightly newer model so check you get the right battery. Plus you need to by deionised water (check instructions) for this to work as its ultrasonic (deionised water is cheap).

If you have any questions i have one of these so ask!!

You should only use one of these if your Doctor advises you to. In which case they are usually provided by the NHS for free. They can be dangerous things in the wrong hands.

"The actual nebulisers and compressors are not prescribable on the NHS(4) although they can be bought VAT-free."(4) Rees J; Methods of delivering drugs. BMJ. 2005 Sep 3;331(7515):504-6.) Normally VAT-free through a Pharmacist who will have a limited number to choose from!

I think you will find they are not in any stretch of the imagination FREE on the NHS! when i needed on they would only let me borrow it (for a short period)! and i was quoted £100 odd pounds to buy one! and normaly the ones you borrow are old and noisy! i agree they are only for people who the doctor advices that they need them, but you cant get the medicine to go in them without a prescription. and some people with brittle asthma (or COPD, emphysema etc) need them for emergencies and when help might not be easierly reachable. I.e camping or trecking.

I bought one last year to take with me while traveling and the doctor prescibed me the medicine to go in it!

These arnt for all ashmatics tho!!

AFAIK they are available in our area (Glasgow) free via the hospital chest clinic.

I was really interested in this as my 3yr old has been admitted to hospital 6 times since the end of April and every time has to be put on the nebuliser, sometimes back to back.
However given his age somehow i don't think the doctors would be recommending me buying this.

Well done for finding it and heat deffo added.

Hmm I dont no much about the situation in scotland! though somtimes with the amount I spend on presciptions etc maybe i should move there! Not that its not that scotland is not important to consider but i do think the some of the ~50 million people in england might be interested as they are in a different situation..

Though i agree in the wrong hands (ie recreational drug users) these could be dangerous.

Yer, i would speak to you doc first! i have mine just for emergencies and I did ask about it first. and as i work in health care and so do many of my close relatives it seemed like a sensible option for when i go away etc. I experienced the back to back nebulisers in hospital and its not the nicest think to experience or even see! i hope you 3 yr old is well now!

Perhaps, but the rest of us make do with a Prepayment certificate for 90 odd quid!

I do know what you mean about equipment though - I had to buy my own walking stick and crutches, (I kid you not!) but I can have all the unnecessary surgery I want for free, (already had some of that, that's why I NEED the props!) yet the only 1 surgical procedure that might actually work and almost certainly will do me any good is NOT an option! These things are often a bit of a mystery, and what is available in one area is not in another; or is only a trial, and not generally available.

Yer i have a prepayment certificate to. Though its the extra costs transport, parking, none perscription stuff, equipment etc.

You should have a look at The Next Stage Review lord darzi has made some interesting points around this area (http://www.ournhs.nhs.uk/).

the Draft of the new NHS constitution states

1. The NHS provides a comprehensive service, available to all
2. Access to NHS services is based on clinical need, not an individual’s ability to pay.

Though I dont fully believe this without evidence, surely thats beside the point anyway.

A deals a deals even if its been a deal before.

I am not being stroppy, and I know you mean well, but you must be fairly new to dealing with the NHS then?

I would suspect the only person to benefit from Lord Darzi's report will be Lord Darzi, besides, by the time anything comes of it, the Tories will be in power and re-adjusting it so their cronies get the big money from the NHS kitty instead of the current ones! :-(

Anyway, getting very off topic now, don't get me started, it's TOO long a story.

I do agree with you to a degree, I do think it is a tell me what we already know and should be doing anyway report. But i guess at least its all in writing, its a shame it cost money and time to put it in writing!

I agree about what you say about the Tories, I just hope they dont undo the good things that have come out of all the frameworks that have been put in place. (i.e NSF - CHD, Stroke stratergy)
