Not had to have one of these in a looong time. Went to the doctor’s and they said I’m not breathing very well – peak flow of 450 instead of 630, fact fans – so I need one of these in case I start wheezing. I’ve not had one of these in maybe 15 years.
Well, I’m getting close to 40 now, I guess it’s all downhill from now on…
HAHA – You’re not even close. Apparently 50 is the new 40. So that’s your new nickname then……Wheezer 😉
I’m gonna look incredibly dumb now, so you can get your own back, but exactly what do those things do ?? How do they improve your breathing ??
Yeah, I think 40 is the new 30. Or something…
Sorry, I somehow assumed everyone at least knew someone who used one of these, I was wrong… The Ventolin inhaler delivers the anti-asthma drug to the lungs when you kinda squirt it as you breathe in. Hope that explains it. 😉
I mean I’ve seen them, and as you say, I’ve known people that use them, but never thought to ask how it makes them breath better. But what does the drug actually do ?? – jeez I sound so ignorant…..wait….I’ll google it.
….oh right, so the stuff is really just a kind of muscle relaxant for the muscles around your airways ?? Understand. See – You learn something everything day……..
How did we cope without search engines? I’ve just been using Wiki to look up ‘Thule’, learning stuff all the time!
