Helpful Devices for MAC
Has anyone purchased and used Molekule, an air cleaner, It is quite expensive, around $700. I’ve seen it advertised but it’s too pricey unless it really clears the air the way it says. Also, is anyone using a respiratory vest for boronciectasis. and if so could you make a recommendation. I’ve had mac a long time but it hasn’t progressed much;ronchiectasis , however, is making it harder to clear my lungs. I do nebulize a saline solution twice a day.

I have an AFFLOW VEST. It’s great— helps bring up phlegm. Just got it 2 months ago. No bill “yet”— medicare
It’s all battery operated. Use it 2x a day when I use my nebulizer. Feels good— nice case w/rollers to take places when you travel.
@windwalker Thanks for that info, I will have a look at some. I am guessing there is no water in the air purifier process, it is pollen season here at the moment, and we are suffering.
I started using a respiratory vest (about four months now) and received mine through Respironics. They have been an excellent company to work with. I live in Minnesota, though so I don’t know if this is helpful or not. I was not able to clear any mucus before using the vest, but am having success now. Good luck and stay well😊
I needed a prescription to get it and my insurance covered most of the cost.
That is wonderful that it has made such a difference for you!!❤️
Good way to look at it positively. I really don’t walk around much to be honest! Keep on keeping on! Keep healthy!!!
Thank you, everyone for info about the vest. I have the paper work going and hope I will be able to use this within a month. Everyone has been very helpful. Good to know that vest treatment can make a difference. I hope to get a battery operated one but beggars etc. Flib
No. No water is used in the purifier.
Thank you and you do the same. flib
