Q: Why it is so important to use a spacer with an MDI?
A: A spacer allows you dispense the respiratory medication and will hold it the chamber while you co-ordinate yourself to inhale the medication. If you use an MDI alone the medication in use will generally collect a the back of the throat due to difficulty in co-ordinating dispensing and inhaling and also when we consider the speed at which the medication is dispensed (approx. 60km/h) it is difficult to ensure the medication will reach deep into the lungs.
Q: Why is it important for my child to use a spacer and mask with an MDI?
A: It is recommended by the Asthma Foundation to use a MDI + Spacer + Mask for children 5 and under. The main reason for this is to ensure the parent can see the child is inhaling the medication as you can see this in the chamber of the spacer. Also generally medication is lost if the child does not seal the end of the spacer with their mouth and the mask will capture reduce this. It is also important to use the spacer as the child may be experiencing co-ordination issues if they are distressed.
Q: What is different about the Allersearch masks?
A: The Allersearch silicone mask is an excellent mask as it is sturdy and stiff over the face when in use. If a mask is sturdy and stiff it will hold its shape over the child's face and not cause more distress for the child that is having an Asthma attack. The mask also provides good suction over the child's face reducing the chance of medication escaping out of the side.
Q: Can I store my MDI in the spacer?
A: Yes you can store your MDI in the Allersearch spacer however you must ensure both the MDI and spacer are kept clean to minimise the build-up of bugs in the chamber.
Q: How do I clean my spacer and how often should I clean it?
A: The Compact Space Chamber Plus should be cleaned once a week but can be washed more often if needed. You can do this by removing the base by placing your thumb on the hole then pull and twist. Wash all parts in warm water with a mild liquid detergent. Shake out excess water and allow to air dry. It is important you do not rinse and do not rub dry.
Q: Can the Allersearch spacer be used with all MDI's?
A: Yes, the base of the Allersearch spacer is made out of a soft malleable material and will accommodate all MDI's.
Q: Why do I need to change all the accessories first time around?
A: It is recommended all three accessories (bowl, mask and tubing) are replaced the first time you need to do this. The reason for this is the accessories are checked as a system and work best as a system so when you use accessories make sure they are the same brand.
