The Paediatric Volumatic Spacer Device and face mask has been designed to help babies and small children take inhaled medicines at correct doses. It ensures that a greater concentration of the inhaled medicines reach the lungs. When using aerosol inhalers it is important that you release a puff of medicine just as you start to breathe in. The Volumatic Spacer Device helps to get the most from your inhaler.
Spacers are particularly useful for helping parents give asthma medicines to young children, and for people who find it difficult to coordinate their breathing with pressing the inhaler canister.
- A volumatic spacer device gives you ample time to use the inhaler and prevents the need for pressing the inhaler and breathing in the medication at the same time
- It extends the amount of time the inhaler takes to deliver medicine
- Spacers allow you to inhale a greater concentration of the inhaler medicine into the lungs
