Why it is beneficial to use a Holding Chamber
Medication sprays or MDIs are often used to treat respiratory diseases such as asthma or COPD. The principle of a MDI is that you ‘press and inhale simultaneously’. For some patients, like children and the elderly, getting this coordination right can be difficult. Poor coordination results in less medication reaching the lung and a greater amount being deposited in the mouth and throat instead. The positive effect of the therapy can be reduced and undesirable side effects can result.
Even if this coordination is executed well, a holding chamber can help to transport a higher dosage of the fine medication particles into the lung1. This in turn means the negative side-effects in the mouth and throat can be reduced.
VORTEX aluminium Holding Chamber – for Treatment that works
The antistatic holding chamber VORTEX helps to minimise these disadvantages. The MDI is triggered into the VORTEX. The patient can then inhale the medication from the holding chamber in their own time. The coordination effort to ‘press and inhale simultaneously’ is minimised and more medication reaches the lung, making the therapy as a whole safer and more effective.
The Cyclone Twist Principle
The VORTEX offers a unique cyclone twist principle which helps to transport very small medication droplets into the lung.
