What is a Inhaler used for?

Asthma inhalers are handy devices that are used to deliver medication into your lungs. These are basically used to treat asthma or COPD. Inhalers can easily be carried around in a pocket or a bag in case of emergencies. Metered dose inhalers are a type of inhalers that are commonly used to deliver reliever medication. These are breath-actuated inhalers i.e. the medicine is delivered into your lungs automatically as you breathe. Some inhalers encapsulate steroids that is used to treat inflammation while others may contain bronchodilators that opens up airways or a combination of both.

What is a Spacer?

A spacer is designed to create a temporary space that holds the medicine before it is inhaled. It attaches to the inhaler making it easier to use. Not all inhalers support spacers, so read the instructions carefully before use. Some spacers also come with masks for smaller children or someone who cannot breathe through a standard spacer. Spacers are made up of plastic and help to get the best out of MDIs (Metered Dose Inhalers). With a spacer it is easier to get the right amount of medicine directly into the lungs where it is required which means you end up using lesser medicine without wastage.

How to use a Inhaler with a Spacer?

  • Hold the spacer in between the teeth
  • Close your mouth tightly around it to avoid medicine to escape
  • Keep your chin in upward position
  • Start breathing in the medication
  • Push a single puff of medicine into the spacer by pressing down the inhaler
  • Inhale as deep as you can
  • Take the spacer out and hold your breath for upto 10 second or according to your capacity
  • Slowly exhale through your mouth
  • In order to reduce side effects of the medicine gargle and rinse your mouth after using the inhaler

How to clean a Spacer

  • Gently clean it using a detergent, like washing-up liquid. Just a small number of brands of the spacer are dishwasher protected, so check the product instructions
  • Be careful not to scrub the inside of your spacer as this might affect the way it works. You can scrub the outside of the spacer and the mouthpiece
  • Leave it to air-dry as this helps to reduce static (an electrical charge that builds up) and prevent the medicine sticking to the inside of the spacer
  • Put your spacer back together, ready for use when it is fully dry
  • Before you use it again, wipe the mouthpiece clean with detergent

Who should use an asthma Inhalers?

  • Asthma Inhalers are safe to be used by children. Kids below the age of 5 years require a mask
  • Adults who take a corticosteroid preventer medication using a MDI/Puffer
  • Adults who cannot coordinate the press and breathe technique when using MDI/Puffer
  • Anyone taking a reliever medication during an asthma attack
Spacers allow the medication get straight to where it is actually needed (in your lungs), with less medication ending up in other places such as your mouth and throat where it can lead to irritation or mild infections. A spacer makes it convenient to coordinate breathing in and pressing your puffer. Especially helpful for older individuals who lack the ability to do so.
