Why is an inhaler always together with an AEROCHAMBER PLUS* FLOW-VU* spacer?

Use of a spacer is a simple and effective way to help improve the use of your inhaler. Spacers help to ensure that your medicine reaches your lungs where it’s needed and limits the amount that ends up in the back of the throat1.

People who use a valved holding chamber (VHC) such as AEROCHAMBER PLUS* FLOW-VU*  chamber, with their inhaler have better control of their respiratory symptoms.2

To improve drug delivery, respiratory guidelines recommend the use of chambers when using metered dose inhalers or puffers in people of all ages.3,4
