7% saline helps make you cough if you breathe it thru a nebulizer. Some come with a cup built onto the aerobika that you can attach to a nebulizer and take your saline at the same time they’re great!!

Hi poodledoc-Hope you are doing well!! Just FYI I have a nebulizer Cup that is built into My aerobika. You put saline in and then Attach to neb machine. I can do the aerobika nebulizer W/saline along with the aerobika at the same time!!
Also—my pulmonologist has me neb albuterol in my aerobika before I do my aerobika for 15”. He said it was to open Airways and prevent bronchospasm when I use Arikayce. After albuterol I do my Arikayce. Just thought I’d say some things since anything that I can find to save time I really appreciate.! Of course the albuterol isn’t saving time but we wanting meds to work the best They can. Healing thots! Judy
Hi Pandora! Welcome!! Learning about your disease to advocate for ourselves with Our doctors that May not know all the ins and outs of it. I had abscesses-with sub species “abscesses“ My doctor knew how to treat it specifically.
Abscessus is a tough mycobacterium and I have had several Oral and IV treatments Over last 2 years. I think I may be free of abscesses now—-my doctor knew the treatments For my subspecies and Knowing the culture and its sensitivities ——-that are “so” important to find best antibiotic to use. I was coughing and feeling terrible I feel much better now. The Best to you! Judy
