Breathe Easy This Flu Season

Flu season is unpredictable and varies from season to season with new flu strains appearing each year.  Typically, flu season peaks in January or February; however, flu activity can begin starting around October.

It is important to protect yourself from the flu by incorporating daily preventative steps:

Keep away from people showing signs of sickness.

  1. Frequently wash your hands to prevent spreading germs.
  2. If you are experiencing flu symptoms, e.g. coughing, sneezing, fever, or sore throat stay home from school or work to prevent spreading the flu to others.
  3. Get a flu vaccine every year!1

If you have contracted the flu and you are having difficulty breathing your doctor may prescribe a breathing treatment to administer medicine.  Nebulizers deliver medication directly to your lungs with less effort than a traditional inhaler.  Additionally, a nebulizer unlike oral medication that passes through the blood stream enters directly into your lungs for immediate treatment.2

If you are experiencing respiratory problems AllegroMedical.com presents our most economical model, the Drive Medical Power Neb Ultra Nebulizer.  This nebulizer is only 3.2 lbs. and delivers fast treatment times with built in hands free neb kit holder.  Always consult your physician regarding treatment options.
