AeroChamber Plus* Flow-Vu* Anti-Static Valved Holding Chamber

 

Did you know that people who use a valved holding chamber with their inhaler have better control of their respiratory symptoms?1

To improve drug delivery, global respiratory guidelines recommend the use of a chamber device along with a metered dose inhaler (MDI) in patients of all ages.2

Using an AeroChamber Plus* Flow-Vu* Anti-Static Valved Holding Chamber (AVHC) with your inhaler helps ensure your medicine is delivered where it is needed to work in your lungs. It also reduces the potential for side effects by limiting the amount of medication that ends up in your mouth.

What Makes the AeroChamber Plus* Flow-Vu* AVHC Different?

The AeroChamber Plus* Flow-Vu* AVHC is the only chamber with a dedicated inhalation indicator. The Flow-Vu* Inhalation Indicator provides caregivers with visual assurance of correct use and medication delivery:

  • shows there is a proper seal
  • enables counting of breaths
  • helps co-ordinate actuation with inhalation

Testimonials
  • "I've tried other products and I must admit that I am a big fan of the AeroChamber Plus* as they are easy to clean and they have a flap that moves when you inhale so you can count your breaths."

  • "Excellent product. Very useful and fits nicely in my handbag."

  • "These are really good and wish we had got one years ago. If you use incorrectly it makes a noise which is fab. Lovely and small so you can fit in a bag and keep clean rather than the massive spacers we have been given from the doctor.

  • "My son loves the bear pictures on the side. He wants to do what the bear is doing!"

  • "Great product…easy to teach, easy to use."

  • "Bought this so my mom had one at her house when she is looking after my son so I don’t forget the one from home. It is a brilliant product, works well and I like the fact they have a picture of a teddy bear on the side of it."

  • "I have found this excellent for me, as I have a problem using my puffers without it. I cannot inhale and puff at the same time. So the AeroChamber Plus* is excellent!"
