How does it work?

Valved Holding Chamber slows down the speed of the medicine, holding it suspended for a short time until you are ready to inhale it.

This then enables optimal inhalation that helps ensure that the medication particles are delivered deep into the lungs.

Where to get an AeroChamber Plus?

The majority of AeroChamber Plus VHC’s are prescribed by GP’s.

However, AeroChamber Plus can also be purchased at a Pharmacy without a prescription.
