Having a child with asthma can be stressful for parents, especially for financially strapped ones struggling to pay for an arsenal of puffers and pills for their child’s treatment. Because of this, those healthcare professionals who recommend spacer chambers may suggest one of many lower-cost versions that are available on the market today. But focusing only on cost may be putting a child’s health at risk.
According to this new retrospective study, published in Pulmonary Therapy, the AeroChamber Plus* Flow-Vu* Anti-Static VHC was associated with a significant delay in time to first exacerbation (p=0.0005) and a significant 13% reduction in Emergency Room/Accident and Emergency (ER/A&E) visits (p=0.0167) compared with control, non-anti-static chambers.
