I use a small Medline Plus HCS 60004 for a nebulizer.

It has no port to add my O2 line into it.

I drilled out the intake port cover just a bit, removed the sponge and I push the end of my O2 line adapter into it to get my O2 while I take my levalbuterol.

Do any of you have a nebulizer that also has an intake port for your O2?

Jocopd: You cannot breath in through your mouth and nose at the same time. I'm on 4 ltr O2 per minute.

I have not asked my MD about this because I explained how I modified a simple Medline nebulizer to accomplish getting needed O2 while using the nebulizer.

My question is how does someone continue their O2 input while using a nebulizer without modifying it themselves?

Keep in mind I cannot go more than a half minute before I start to stress out from lack of O2. MY FEV1 level is 14% I am stage 4 COPD. I did a little searching on the 'net' and found this:

It will do exactly what I want. Work off of my simple medline nebulizer and allow me to add my O2 into the mask at the same time!

Can't think of any reason to add an oxygen line to your nebulizer. Even if your using a face mask for the treatments you should be able to keep your canula in place with the mask. I know the RT's use the oxygen line when giving treatments in the hospital but that's because it's easy and convenient... and they don't have to deal with sterilizing/cross contamination if they used a portable compressor instead.

Never heard of a nebulizer having an oxygen port.

The oxygen canula from your oxygen tank/machine goes in your nose

The mouth piece to the nebulizer goes in your mouth.

You can keep the cannula on while using the nebulizer
