Our Childhood Asthma Journey is More Manageable, Thanks to Our Portable MicroAir Nebulizer from OMRON + Discount Code


This post is sponsored by OMRON. All thoughts are my own.

Over the past several weeks, I have been delighted to share our family's asthma story with you. While I wasn't sure quite how it would play out, I am so pleased to say that it couldn't have worked out better for my family, particularly my son, B. If you'll recall, B is ten years old, an active guy who loves to play and dance, and he's living with childhood asthma. In earlier posts, I talked about where our asthma journey began, and how we wound up eager to try a nebulizer to help our son. Today, I'm excited to share a few more details about our experience, and tell you why and how this fantastic product has changed our lives.

Imagine being ten years old, going about your daily activities, and then stopping in your tracks because you suddenly can't breathe. One minute, you're kicking around a soccer ball with a friend on a mild temperature day, and then you find yourself wheezing and gasping for air. This is daily life for someone with asthma. My sister has asthma, and my son has it, and let me tell you- flare ups can sometimes be scary.

Luckily, I have a fair amount of knowledge about asthma, and experience in dealing with it, thanks to living with an asthmatic sibling for many years. I found dealing with and treating my son's asthma a little less frightening because I sort of knew what to look for and what to expect. I knew he would need daily allergy medication, and probably an inhaler. Done, and done! What I didn't realize was that sometimes, that inhaler wouldn't be enough, and better treatment option was out there, and readily available, with our doctor's approval.

Getting a nebulizer for B has completely changed our lives. We no longer have to worry about how we'll treat a sudden (bad) flare-up of asthma when we're at home or on the go. Thanks to the Portable MicroAir Nebulizer from OMRON, we're back to living life to the fullest, and couldn't be happier for our sweet boy! In my last post, I talked a lot about the nebulizer, its features, and how it works. We've since had an opportunity to try it out away from home, and the experience was completely amazing!

We recently took our kiddos to an indoor waterpark/resort for an overnight stay and play. I didn't even hesitate to book our room, even considering B's asthma. I knew that we would be able to easily bring along his portable nebulizer, and that he could use it in our room, or even in the waterpark. As I suspected, the temperature inside the waterpark was 87 degrees, and extremely humid- prime combination for an asthma flare-up when mixed in with activities such as swimming and waterslides.

Since our nebulizer is portable, and battery powered, it's easy to just place into an overnight or pool bag. It takes up virtually zero space, and doesn't need to be plugged in to be charged or powered up. When I noticed that B was lagging behind and seemed to be having trouble breathing in the waterpark, we took a break and used the nebulizer, which I was able to properly clean once we were back to our room. Without being able to use the nebulizer on the go like that, B would have had to sit out for a while, and would have missed out on valuable playtime at the park. Our nebulizer literally saved the day.

Once back to our room, B was able to rest, and I was able to properly clean the nebulizer.

The Portable MicroAir Nebulizer is super small, easy to bring along anywhere you go, and it's easy to clean. Cleaning the nebulizer properly, however, it of utmost importance! 

To clean the nebulizer:

Remove the mask, and clean with warm water and mild soap/detergent.
Open the medicine chamber and remove any unused medicine.
Run water through the nebulizer to clean it (meaning, put water in the nebulizer where you would put the medicine, and turn it on to run it, and clean it).
Remove the other parts from the nebulizer and wash in warm water with a mild detergent.
Allow to fully dry.

Cleaning the nebulizer after each use is so important! If you don't clean it, the nebulizer will likely wind up with built up gunk and bacteria, which could make your child very sick. 

Our happy little family, not worried about asthma treatment while on the go!

I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to learn how to treat my son's asthma with our OMRON nebulizer. Life is already better for him, and with spring and summertime coming up, I know he will have a much happier time playing and living life as a ten-year-old, knowing that we can quickly and effectively treat his asthma. I even plan to have our portable nebulizer on hand in the car after school (at pick up time) as the weather warms up. B has recess right before dismissal, and we'll be able to treat any flare-up right in the car, if need be.

I don't usually look forward to spending a lot of time outdoors with my son during the spring and summer months because of his asthma, but the Portable MicroAir Nebulizer has been a complete game-changer for my son, and for our whole family, as well.

If you have an asthma sufferer in your family, and you've not yet talked to your doctor about the possibility of treatment via nebulizer, I would encourage you to ask about it. It's absolutely worth chatting about, to see if it might be a good option for you. I'm thankful that I talked to my son's doctor about using a nebulizer, and that the Portable MicroAir Nebulizer from OMRON has been so wonderful for my son! I'll be sticking with OMRON's nebulizers from here on out. As my son grows, his needs will change, and I'm just glad that we'll have OMRON by our side as we continue along in our journey.
