Space Chamber Plus , to get the best from your inhalers

5 out of 5 stars

Inhalers can be tricky to perfect a technique with at the best of times, but when you have an instance where you really need that inhaler, the techniques and correct procedures can go out of the window! You just squeeze and suck, you need relief quick!
We are all told this is the wrong way to do it, but when you are struggling to breath it is difficult to be calm and collected sometimes.
Another problem for people prescribed inhalers is that their lung capacity is often compromised so that a deep breath is impossible, as is any chance of holding the breath for 5, 10 or 15 seconds as recommended.
All of which means, that although the medication in our inhalers is perfectly good, and optimised for our condition, we just cannot get the full benefit, plus the medication ending up in our mouth and throat instead of lungs, causing sore throat and oral thrush to compound our problems.
This was the case with me, until my COPD nurse got me to try the Space Chamber Plus.
Now I attach the inhaler, pressit as usual for the dose, which enters the chamber, and only then do I need to fit my lips to the mouthpiece, and take up to 7 normal steady breaths, not having to think about any technique. The medication sits safe in the chamber until you take it in.
It is easy to wash, just warm water and weak detergent mix, no rinsing needed, just leave to drain and dry. Dishwasher safe as well.
It comes in 2 sizes, standard and compact, I use the compact.
Masks can be attached, but I prefer without so it is less bulky and small enough to carry around when you go out.
