Why should I use a spacer?
Using a spacer is much more effective than a puffer alone. For many people, executing the correct technique when using an asthma puffer alone can be difficult which leads to poor drug delivery to the lungs. e-chamber spacers help slow the delivery of medication and reduce the need for co-ordination, which in turn allows for a much higher quality delivery to the lungs. Check out our video for more info.
How do I help my toddler with using a spacer?
For your kids 0-6, it may be difficult for them to use a spacer by themselves. For this age especially, it is best to include a mask attachment to ensure they are effectively receiving their medication into their lungs.
Will my medication get stuck in the spacer?
The e-chamber asthma spacers have a very unique design that is anti-static. This avoids medication adhering to the sides of the spacer during delivery and therefore eliminates the need to rinse, drip dry or prime the spacer prior to use.
Why is e-chamber the best option?
As seen in our product comparison, the e-chamber range has the highest dose of medication exiting the chamber and respirable dose exiting the chamber compared to other asthma spacers.
Should masks only be used for infants and children?
Masks can be used for anyone at any age, making medication delivery less difficult for individuals. You can buy 2 different sized masks here, to help with using your spacer.
Which spacer is best for me?
All of our spacer options are great! The La Grande spacer with its larger capacity at 510mL provides the best medication delivery, but the La Petite is our most popular as its performance is still great and can conveniently fit in any backpack, handbag or school bag! Check out our product descriptions to find what’s right for you.
Do masks come with the spacer?
We do offer a convenient combo option for your 0-6 year olds which includes the La Petite Spacer and a small mask.
What is a portable nebuliser?
The e-chamber Portable Nebuliser is a low cost, lightweight and compact device that can provide delivery of prescribed liquid medication, in instances where a spacer & puffer is not suitable. It can ensure effective and comfortable medication delivery while on the go or travelling, just as effectively as spacers.
How do I clean my spacer?
You should clean your spacer weekly by removing each part of the spacer, hand-wash in warm soapy water and allow your spacer to air dry. Check out our video that gives you a step-by-step guide.
When do I need to replace my spacer?
Spacers should be replaced every 12 months or immediately after if any damage or breakage has occurred.
