Seems to work great. Use it for my 2 year old with a peds sized mask. Never used a spacer before nothing to compare it to but it seems to get the job done!

Here in NC we train the school staff on administering Meds and these were recommended for their durability
Lacks enough rubber

While the device seems adequate, I notice when using it, that the end rubber seal tends to slip off the tube, since there is very little rubber actually holding it on the tube. Unless you check it very carefully before use, it may not have a good seal and medication may be lost.

I had been using the same old spacer for years (ashamed to say) - I finally purchased this one - it works very well.
Not as satisfied as I'd hoped to be

I started out with one of the AeroChambers. They cost $50 and info stated they may have to be replaced annually depending on how they are taken care of. This price is awfully high for me to pay. In addition, I was having a problem about forgetting I had it in a dish soaking and then when it came time for my next treatment I couldn't use it because it was wet so decided it would be beneficial for me to have two of these chambers on hand, and also to try this considerably less expensive Pari Vortex.
According to the information given on this Vortex, it should get more medication to the lungs than other spacers of this type. However, the problem I am finding with it is that it has a real short neck on it and I'm finding it hard to place my lips around this short neck for a good seal.
I thought maybe I was doing it wrong; that one is supposed to go beyond that ridge when you place it in the mouth and encircle that entire area beyond the ridge. But that didn't seem right so then I went to the usage videos and it looks like you only cover that little short neck in front of the ridge. For comfort and proper application I think that neck needs to be longer and I'm not finding this Vortex comfortable to use.
Fast, cheap and effective!

When my old inhaler spacer broke, my usual pharmacy said I could get a lower quality spacer for $60 in 8 days. As that was not acceptable, I started doing my research on which spacer best fit my needs and which company could get it her in less than a week without paying more than $50. This was a great choice! it was very easy to use and easy to clean. As a bonus, I could use MDIs with round, ovular and rectangular mouthpieces without buying separate parts. The only downside is that it is hard to switch MDIs without accidentally taking the attachment piece off, but I am not buying 4 different spacers! Another highlight: you can switch medications without worrying about mixing because it is really easy to insure that the chamber is cleared.

I found this on Amazon for $30.00 more per device. I was so happy to find them here. I needed 2. Thank You

Works wonderfully, just as it's supposed to. Delivers an inhaler dose much more proficiently than the inhaler alone.
