Vocal steamer or nebuliser?

Post by Ditzi » Sun Jul 11, 2021 11:46 am

Hi,

I am considering buying a vocal steamer or nebuliser for dd and I am not sure which one I should go for. Just wondering if any dd’s / ds’s use them and I would be interested to hear pros and cons for both. I came across an article saying that nebulisers are more effective, but they carry vapor further into your lungs than a steamer and can carry material into your bronchi that shouldn’t be there. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Dh is a vocal coach with a specific interest in vocal injury. He recommends the Nelson's steamer.

We have both at home.Dd definitely prefers her pocket nebuliser.The little vials are sterile.

I think fresh pineapple every morning also helps.
