AeroChamber Max - Valved Holding Chamber

What is a valved holding chamber, or VHC?

Valved holding chambers are devices designed for use with metered-dose inhalers (MDI). Their purpose is to improve medication delivery, decrease deposition of medication in the mouth and throat, and eliminate the need to coordinate activating the MDI with inhaling the medication.

Holding chambers have valves that prevent medication loss during exhalation by allowing air to flow through the chamber only during inspiration. For children with asthma, an MDI with a holding chamber may be easier to use and more effective than an MDI alone.

  Best chamber on the market!
Reviewed by: Asthma sufferer from Detroit

AeroChamber is the best brand on the market. I tried the Vortex but you can't see the medication and I was getting this "metal" taste with my medicine - also the mouthpiece fell off and the valve broke!
  Great delivery system

My son has many medical issues. The AeroChamber Max makes it easier for him to take his MDI's the mask allows him to take full breaths of his medications without worries of having disjointed breathing cause missing meds.
  My 5yr old Son actually enjoys using this device!
Reviewed by: Happy Parent from East Tenn

My 5yr old son is very picky to begin with and doesn't usually enjoy taking medicine. But this device has a "breathing indicator" which helps determine the best moment to actuate the inhaler during an inhalation to assure he gets the proper dose. My son likes to practice making the breathing indicator "wiggle" before he actually "takes" the medicine. The best thing is that our Dr. reccomended we find this device on-line as retail pharmacies in our area were asking high prices for it. We found it at AchooAllergy.com for nearly half the going rate of our local stores. PLUS, the customer service was excellent and easy to reach and speak with - I received an email confirmation of my order instantly and an email announcing the shipping of the item which arrived quickly and as expected. I'll order again from AchooAllergy.com!

Customer Q & A

Q1: I understand the aerochamber allows more delivery of medication than using an inhaler alone. Please site research studies that support this claim Thankyou, Maryellen

A: Spacers, like the Aerochamber, only deliver medication more efficiently than an MDI alone since with a spacer you can breathe normally. For some it is a problem to coordinate the inhalation of the medication with actual dispersal of it from the MDI generally, the elderly and small children. So in lieu of having to pump then inhale deeply at the same time, some people choose to use a spacer which allows them to breathe normally and get the same medication. The only studies that show that a spacer like the Aerochamber is an effectiv alternative to a nebulizer. Other studes from Johns Hopkins show that and MDI, MDI with spacer or nebulizer all delivery aerosolized medication effectively with the main differences being, device/drug availability clinical setting patient age and the ability to use the selected device correctly device use with multiple medications cost and reimbursement drug administration time convenience in both outpatient and inpatient settings and physician and patient preference. You can find all of these studies by searching http://www.hopkinsguides.com/hopkins/ub and some are found here http://www.monaghanmed.com/clinical-library

Q2: Cleaning instructions for Aero Chamber Max, valued holding chamber-is such information available?

A: Generally for aerosol medication delivery systems we have recommended a warm water rinse every week or so, depending on how frequently you use the device. To take it a step further, you can soak it in a solution of mild, liquid dishsoap and lukewarm water, gently agitate, then rinse thoroughly. This will help keep it clean of dried up medication that may reduce the performance of the holding chamber.

Q3: how do I know the size? my son is 5 years old.

A: Generally your pediatrician will be able to give you a good idea of what size you need. For a child of that age though, the small size usually fits best.
