AeroKat* Feline Aerosol Chamber
The AeroKat* Feline Aerosol Chamber (FAC) is designed to be used with a Metered Dose Inhaler (puffer) as recommended by a veterinarian to deliver aerosol medication to cats with feline asthma, chronic bronchitis or allergic rhinitis.
When the AeroKat* FAC is attached to the puffer it allows your cat to breathe normally and inhale the aerosol medication which goes deep into your cat's lungs, where it is needed.
The Flow-Vu* Indicator takes the guesswork out of using your cat's aerosol medication. The Flow-Vu* Indicator will help you count the number of breaths your cat has taken through the chamber and may help to ensure there is a satisfactory seal between the muzzle and the mask to optimize the delivery of the medication.
As your cat inhales, the bright green Flow-Vu* Indicator will flutter or move towards the cat (if you have a good facemask seal). When your cat stops inhaling or exhales, the indicator will return to the vertical position.
The ideal time to activate the puffer is when your pet starts to inhale and the Flow-Vu* Indicator is moving horizontally towards them.
AeroKat* Chamber comes with 2 masks (3.2cm & 3.9cm in diameter). The mask should cover you cat's nose and mouth but not the eyes.
Approximately one in 100 cats have asthma – perhaps more, as the symptoms are often confused with hairballs.
During an asthma attack, the pathways in the lungs become inflamed and narrow resulting in symptoms that may include frequent wheezing, persistent coughing and/or open mouth or labored breathing.
Asthma generally affects cats between 2 and 8 years of age – with Siamese and Himalayan breeds having a higher prevalence.
Remove cap and shake inhaler.
Insert inhaler into back of chamber and gently apply the mask to your cat’s face.
Press the inhaler to release the medication when the Flow-Vu* Inhalation Indicator is moving toward your cat and hold the mask in place for 5-6 breaths.
