Did you know? More than 65 million Americans overall have asthma and allergies. Some people may have one or both of these conditions.
As winter comes to an end and spring approaches, many individuals begin to experience seasonal allergies and asthma. If you are someone who suffers from these conditions, you know how debilitating they can be. However, there are steps you can take to prepare for spring allergies and asthma. One of the most effective ways to manage these conditions is by investing in a nebulizer and an air purifier.
Nebulizers are a medical device that deliver medication directly to the lungs. They work by converting liquid medication into a fine mist that can be inhaled. Nebulizers are commonly used to treat asthma, as well as other respiratory conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Using a nebulizer can provide quick relief from symptoms, and can be a lifesaver in the event of an asthma attack, especially during those dreaded high pollen seasons.
Air purifiers, on the other hand, work by removing pollutants and allergens from the air. They can be especially helpful for individuals who suffer from seasonal allergies, as they can remove pollen and other irritants from the air and can reduce the need for nebulizer treatment by removing known triggers from the air. Air purifiers can also be beneficial for individuals who live in areas with high levels of pollution or who are sensitive to common indoor pollutants, such as pet dander and dust.
When selecting a nebulizer and air purifier, it is important to choose products that are specifically designed for your needs. For example, if you have severe asthma, you may need a nebulizer that is designed to deliver medication quickly and efficiently. Likewise, if you suffer from allergies, you may need an air purifier that is designed to remove specific allergens from the air. Your doctor may recommend one specific approach over another, and our JMS staff is also available to help source the correct device for you.
If you are anticipating spring allergies and asthma, looking into purchasing a nebulizer and/or air purifier can be a wise decision. These devices can provide relief from symptoms and improve your overall quality of life. Be sure to consult with your doctor or a medical supply professional to select the products that are right for you.
