Aerochamber with mask

 

These are only used for babies and toddlers

until the age of 3 or 4 years.

 

Studies demonstrate that only 3% of the medication reaches the small airways so good technique is of utmost importance if medications are to be effective.  As soon as your toddler can master the Able spacer the better.

 

 

To clean, wash in warm soapy water once a month, do not rinse or towel dry.  Drip dry.  Store in a zip lock bag as mold grows on the mask in Bermuda.
