Bronchiecstacis . I have read this forum with interest, as I am waiting for my respiratory physiotherapist to bring me a flutter. Having suffered for over two years with the problem, it was good to read the complimentary remarks concerning the flutter.many thanks.

    What's a 'flutter'??

      Hi Sally. A FLUTTER is similar in shape to a smokers pipe and the end piece contains a small ball which rises and falls and causes a vibration in the lungs . this shakes loose the mucus and makes it easier to expel. The ball shaking makes a fluttering sound.

      I will receive one on Thursday.

    Hi Graham

    Thanks for that. Interesting! I'll look in to ordering one. I've already found that my nebuliser (recommended on this site) is making a difference.

    Thanks so much for the info.

      You are welcome Sally.

      Now, I have used my nebulizer, and it made a little difference. Tomorrow my resp nurse is bringing me a flutter. Watch this space.

      Dear Sally GB.

      I now have, and used my FLUTTER. It takes a little getting used to, but it works. I do feel better and it is worth having.

      As I said previously, get one on the N.H.S.

      Best wishes and I hope you succeed and feel better. Graham 2340.

      Thank you! I'll be seeing my GP this week to arrange a review of my bronchX, and will be requesting a Flutter on the NHS. 

      NHS 70 years old. We're so lucky to have it!

      With kind regards

      Sally
