How often is safe to use nebulizer

Patient

Q: How often is safe to use a nebulizer,and when is it time to go to the ER

Symptoms:  Wheezing,I have a cold I believe
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Nebulizer can be safely used even 3 to 4 times a day and if relief is not obtained then one must consider reporting to ER , as sometimes if nebulization is taken late , then bronchial asthma attack can aggravate when intravenous bronchodilators are required, else mouth puffs are the best way to control asthma.
I hope i have answered your query,
wishing you good health,
regards
