My father was a foot doctor. I was born in 1953. We were both born with asthma. He cooked chemicals on the stove before inhalers. He called it his bluzzer. Rubber squeeze ball with a glass mister. A hand held nebulizer. I remember my dad placing the muster plaster on my chest to help the phlegm loosen. It left a burn mark but helped.Today I have asthma and COPD. I use a nebulizer with 4 inhalants.
