AeroChamber Plus® Flow-Vu® Valved Holding Chambers
Asthma is one of the most common chronic disorders in childhood and affects an estimated 26 million Americans, 7.1 million of whom are children under the age of 18 years. Asthma cannot be cured but it can be managed with medication. Metered-dose inhalers are commonly prescribed for asthma. However, they can be difficult to use, requiring coordination between spraying and inhalation. Dr. Jacqueline Eghrari-Sabet, Allergist, and Tonya Winders of Allergy and Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics join us as we look at a way to help address delivery of medication using these inhalers. Use of a valved holding chamber is recommended to get the benefit from an asthma inhaler by helping to correctly deliver medication. This is especially beneficial to children and the elderly, who may have trouble using their inhaler properly.
