I was at a conference and I saw a display from a company that makes a valved holding chamber that you can use with different age groups. (Basically, it's a tube that connects to your asthma inhaler. You spray the inhaler in to the tube, then you can inhale the asthma medicine out of the tube and it will go into your lungs.)
You can use it:
- as a valved holding chamber with an older child
- add a mask for a younger child
- add a mask and pacifier for an baby
You can watch a video to see how it works
Has anyone tried this yet? With the pacifier for a baby? It seems like companies are always coming up with something new!
I always used the nebulizer for my kids when they were little. I'm wondering if the valved holding chamber and pacifier would work just as well?
Any comments from anyone that has tried it?
