Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (or COPD) is an inflammatory lung disease in which airflow is obstructed from the lungs. Portable nebulizers for COPD have been a proven treatment method.
Smoking is a major cause of COPD especially in people who have smoked over a long period of time. Some of the most common signs and symptoms for COPD include:
- Frequent respiratory infections
- Shortness of breath
- Swelling in ankles, feet, or legs
There are treatments for COPD that can help minimize your symptoms and keep them better managed. Treatments like a portable nebulizer machine can provide symptom relief so that you can get on with your day. We’ll discuss nebulizers for COPD and other treatment options available.
Treating COPD can be challenging but there are a few options available.
Nebulizers are a way to get your COPD medication into your lungs to relieve your symptoms. A nebulizer machine will turn your medication from liquid into a mist so that you can inhale it. You inhale the medication via a mouth or mask piece. With a nebulizer treatment machine, you’ll get a continuous mist of your meds which you’ll breathe in for about 5 to 7 minutes, sometimes longer.
With TruNeb™ you’ll get a portable nebulizer so that you can take it on the go. This makes it so much easier to get relief from your COPD symptoms when you really need them most. This is what makes it the best nebulizer for COPD.
You can do a type of rehab for your lungs called Pulmonary Rehabilitation. This type of treatment is a combination of education and exercise and allows you to better manage your breathing troubles. With Pulmonary Rehab, you’ll meet with a licensed rehab therapist 2-4 times a week to get your breathing under control. Once your breathing is under control, your doctor or rehabilitation specialist may prescribe additional at-home breathing treatments to continue managing your COPD.
Another common type of treatment for COPD is an oxygen tank or oxygen therapy. When you have COPD, you are not getting enough oxygen into your lungs. An oxygen tank provides the supplemental oxygen that your body needs.
Nebulizers vs. Inhalers for COPD
People often wonder what the difference is between nebulizers and inhalers for COPD. Both options turn medicine from a liquid form into a mist.
As we mentioned earlier, a portable nebulizer machine gives off a continuous mist for 5-7 (or more) minutes while you breathe it in. On the other hand, an inhaler provides brief bursts of mist that you breathe in. Most doctors prescribe between 1 and 3 puffs a few times a day for COPD, or as needed for your particular situation.
