Nebulization in an infant
Hello, I have a 7-month-old infant with CF. I would like to know if I can start hypertonic saline nebulizations to prevent the dehydratation of its mucus, of course with respect to the device disinfection rules. Do you think that it could be efficient to delay pulmonary infections?
Addendum to answer „inhalation with 3% NaCl solution“
Dear Dr. Posselt, many thanks for your inquiry and answer. With mixtures I meant mixtures between 0.9% and 3% NaCl and (!) 6 drops Berodualin®. After the diagnosis has been made we were told in the CF center that the 6 drops Berodualin® should be added directly into the 0.9% NaCl (for ...

Tobramycin inhalation
Hello, is there any information if tobramycin inhalation during early pregnancy can be harmful for the baby? We have to inhale tobramycin twice a day with our 2-year-old CF daughter and we ask ourselves if the vapours that we share by sitting next to her could harm the unborn. Many thanks
Hello, my 11-year-old daughter daily inhales colistin aerosols delivered via an e-Flow. My MD has informed me about a dry powder form of colistin in capsules as it exists for tobramycin. I would know when the dry powder colistin will be available in France. Thanks very much for your responses.
