The ability to breathe naturally is a privilege many of us take for granted, unfortunately for the millions of people suffering from asthma, bronchitis, pulmonary emphysema and other respiratory disorders, it’s not so straightforward. Statistics from the Irish Thoracic Society show that Ireland currently has the second highest incidence of respiratory disease throughout the EU, with respiratory disease the direct cause of one in five deaths in Ireland. Conditions such as asthma, bronchial disease, cystic fibrosis and even allergies can turn the simple task of breathing into a daily challenge and in turn may lead to debilitating and serious health complications.

With respiratory disease deaths exceeding those of coronary artery disease in Ireland it has never been more crucial to ensure personalised respiratory therapy is delivered efficiently and as effectively as possible with the delivery of prescribed medication to the bronchi and bronchioles in the lower respiratory tract. At we are proud stockists of the OMRON range of portable nebulisers, designed to provide instantaneous relief to the sufferer, wherever they may be.
