Which spacer is right for you?
Using the correct spacer for your will ensure the medication in your inhaler is delivered to your lungs most effectively. They also help to reduce side-effects of the inhaler medication if not delievered to your lungs properly.
Ensure you have a nice seal of the spacer mask on your face, covering your nose and mouth nicely with no gaps around your eyes or chin.
If you are using a spacer with a mouthpiece, ensure your lips create a tight seal and your technique is perfect.
