7% Saline Solution

Posted by thumperguy @thumperguy, Tue, Jan 7 1:27pm

Got a supply of 7% vials and got a real jolt in my throat when I began inhaling it. However I quickly adapted to it and was able to finish the vial. Within a few minutes I was coughing and bringing stuff up – a first. I never had a timely response to 0.9. Bottom line: I guess the 7% solution is…well the real solution. Not to be confused with the Sherlock and Sigmund thing. Forgive my corny effort at mirth. Don

Here is a link for those who like scientific data. This has charts about what salinity % kills various organians. It is slightly different from a previous article I had posted. This is a good one to print and give to drs who may not be familiar with saline therapy. https://www.thelancet.com/action/showPdf?pii=S0140-6736%2820%2931201-0

Hello Sue, the link took me to "Revisiting the 1957 and 1968 influenza pandemics", would you please review and sent me the one on salinity charts? Thank you and have a good night

Hi there, welcome to our group. The charts for saline effectiveness are located near the end of the article. https://cysticfibrosisnewstoday.com/2018/06/13/ecfs2018-multiple-sclerosis-treatment-glatiramer-acetate-aids-antibiotic-in-killing-pseudomonas-aeruginosa-strains/

You can Google search nebulizers and many sites will come up for places that sell them. Can order online.

@macinfo2020 @windwalker Hi! I think Terri put the wrong article up just now for the saline. (The article she posted was meant for a different discussion.) Here are two articles that Terri has posted here about 7 % saline: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4850692/pdf/13104_2016_Article_2054.pdf and https://www.resmedjournal.com/action/showPdf?pii=S0954-6111%2811%2900254-X . I think the charts she was refering to are Tables 2 and 3 in the first (ncbi) article.

@macinfo2020 Hi, I think you will get as many opinions as there are people in the group! My favorite for at home is the plug-in Pari Vios, the current one is branded by Walgreens. It does a decent trouble-free job, in a moderate amount of time on saline and levalbuterol. It also worked on Tobramycin when I was using that. Downsides, a little loud and quite bulky. I have had several travel ones, battery operated or can plug in at home or in the car. They have not been very durable for me, and sort of slow to dispense meds, so I don't personally recommend any of them. My daughter uses a very nice impeller (vs compressor) type, rechargeable and fast, but my insurance doesn't cover and it costs over $300.

Some people don’t tolerate 7% well, to wit: riits on this board.

When you say "don't tolerate 7% well" what do you mean. Is it discomfort or perhaps damage to the throat or….? Thank you, Flib

In praise of 7% saline strength; I‘ve made it 9 months without a febrile exacerbation. Don
