What is BREATH-A-TECH?
The Breath-A-Tech spacer is a compact, cost efficient spacer for use with all standard puffers in the treatment of asthma. The Breath-A-Tech spacer has proven, in extensive clinical studies, to deliver asthma medication more effectively to both adults and children. Leading hospitals, clinics and medical centres choose Breath-A-Tech because it is proven to be effective in delivering medication and is easy to clean.
Why use a BREATH-A-TECH spacer?
The goal is to get the medication deep into your lungs where it can work to manage your asthma. When a puffer is used alone, most of the medication ends up in the mouth, throat and stomach and only a small amount actually gets to the lungs. Breath-A-Tech helps get asthma medication into the small airways deep within the lungs where it works, helping manage your asthma and lessening the possible side effects.
