Flexichamber helps children receive their full dose of medicine

When a child is diagnosed with asthma, doctors often prescribe a metered dose inhaler (MDI) – commonly referred to as an inhaler. Using an inhaler requires refined coordination and inhalation techniques that can be tricky, especially for small children. Errors in technique prevent the child from receiving the full dose of medication1. As a result, asthma symptoms are not properly controlled and may worsen over time.

To ensure the child receives the optimal dose, many doctors prescribe a spacer – such as Flexichamber – to be used with an inhaler. Flexichamber was designed to overcome problems that patients commonly experience when using just an inhaler to administer their asthma medication. When used properly and as prescribed by a doctor, Flexichamber:

  • Helps deliver asthma medication from the inhaler to tissue deep within the lungs
  • Reduces the amount of medication that settles onto the child’s mouth and throat
  • Allows caregivers to visually monitor breathing techniques and provide additional instructions if needed

Compact and Convenient

Flexichamber is made for asthma patients with active lifestyles. Unlike traditional, hard-walled holding chambers, Flexichamber collapses down to a compact size that easily fits inside a backpack or purse. Its lightweight and portable design provides maximum convenience.

Compatible Face Masks

The use of a face mask with a holding chamber may be considered a necessity for small children and patients who are unable to perform recommended breathing techniques. The mask fits over the nose and mouth to allow children to inhale the medication more naturally and comfortably. Three different sizes are available to accommodate children of all ages.

More than 90% of children use their metered-dose inhaler incorrectly.1
