Optichamber Diamond Holding Chamber
You can get the most out of your asthma medication using the OptiChamber Valved Holding Chamber from Philips Respironics. Designed to optimize the delivery of MDI (metered-dose inhaler) asthma medications, it delivers the smaller medication particles which reach deep into peripheral airways. Replaceable silicone one-way valve prevents exhaled air from entering the chamber. Easy to use, the chamber comes apart easily, making it easy to clean. This product is for use with metered dose inhalers. NDC #08373-7478-00.

from KMC, Chicago, Ill. As an emergency department nurse for over 30 years, my first experience with an MDI spacer was its use with pediatric asthma patients. That alone should tell the reader how easy a delivery chamber is to use! I recently had pulmonary function tests, and the therapist showed me how to use an inhaler alone, then the inhaler with a delivery chamber. It was so much easier to form a seal around the chamber mouthpiece, than around the inhaler mouthpiece itself. The whistle sound that this Optichamber makes if I inhale too fast is an immedidate reminder to adjust my inspiration rate. Although the chamber is not as small as the size of an inhaler alone, I carry both in my purse. When I need to use a "rescue" inhaler I want to be sure the medication is delivered properly, with the best results possible. I believe this Optichamber does just that.
- Great chamber for an independent 4 yr old
I was very pleased to find this website with this chamber. My current pharmacy cost twice as much. Very pleased it was shipped & received in a couple days. Very happy customer!

Not only is this chamber slightly larger than the AeroChamber, allowing better dispersement of MDI medications, it has a removable mouthpiece making it much easier to keep clean.
Thank you for carrying this product. I recently lost my Optichamber and it really makes a difference for my asthma when I exercise, so I've been missing it. I'm interested to find out what other products you may carry to assist me in my efforts to remain healthy both asthma wise and fitness wise.
- MDI Spacer
This was my first experience with an MDI spacer. The seal was good, the size was perfect, the whistle was useful in regulating inspiration. It was very easy to clean.
