Why should I use a spacer?
More medication gets into your lungs than if you use a puffer on its own.
They reduce the local side effects of inhaled steroids in preventer medications, because less of the medication sticks in your mouth and throat You don’t need to coordinate pressing your puffer and breathing in at the same time Reliever medication via a spacer is at least as effective as via a nebuliser in an asthma attack, and you can take the medication faster and in a lower dose than with a nebuliser. This is because the spacer delivers the medication more effectively. This lower dose reduces the risk of side effects such as fast heart rate and tremor which can be caused by the reliever
Everyone who uses a puffer for their medication is recommended to use a spacer
