This laboratory-based study mimicking adult inhalation of suspension- and solution-formulated pMDI-delivered medications highlighted the potential for even a short delay, following inhaler actuation without a VHC, to reduce markedly the efficiency of aerosol delivery to the carinal region of the airway, potentially available for lung delivery.

But focusing only on cost may be putting a child’s health at risk.

This study highlights that not all chambers perform the same and may deliver different amounts of medication.

Clinicians should be aware that the volume of a VHC has a marked effect on the delivery of medication.
