Abstract

A nebuliser service should be provided locally, according to local needs. It should be centralised and administered by a designated consultant or consultants and written guidelines should be provided for medical and para-medical staff. The service should: (1) provide compressor/nebuliser units suitable for the prescribed treatment, (2) provide a system for equipment replacement, repair and maintenance, and (3) show patients how to use the equipment and give them comprehensive written instructions.
