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.
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.

An inhaler is a small, medical device designed to deliver medication into the lungs of a patient with respiratory problems. Inhalers are required by those suffering from asthma and with breathing problems due to nasal congestion, etc. It provides short-term relief from wheezing, breathlessness, and coughing spasms. Medicine is put into an inhaler and the user puffs on the inhaler. The medicine goes directly into the airways on breathing in for immediate relief.
A spacer, also referred to as a holding chamber, is a large plastic or metal device which enhances the use of an inhaler. It has a mouthpiece on one end and an opening at the other end to which the aerosol inhaler is connected.
A metered dose inhaler, or MDI, is a device that supplies lungs with a specified amount of medication. This is delivered in short bursts of aerosolized medicine self-administered by the patient. A MDI is generally used in the treatment of asthma, chronic pulmonary and other respiratory diseases.
