Thank you I will watch for that side effect. My husband is always complaining about the heat even on Ventolin. The oldest days in winter he will only wear a shirt and a vest.

Bricanyl is Bronchial Dilator that is delivered by a turbo chamber.

It is more convenient to carry in a pocket because it does not require an aero chamber.

The Turbo Chamber is more effective than the Meter dose in treating breathing problems.

Bricanyl Iworks the same as Ventolin but delivers more medication and is therefore more effective as a Bronchial Dilator.

The following is a study on the amount of Ventolin that is delivered by the conventional meter dosed delivery system. This method is should always use an aero chamber

Experimental setup to study critical errors by inhaler patients.

New studies by Rice University electrical engineers and pulmonologists at Baylor College of Medicine used this experimental setup to find critical errors that cause many inhaler patients to get only about half as much medicine as they should from each puff. (Photo by Jeff Fitlow/Rice University)

“Metered-dose inhalers are used every day by people with asthma, COPD and other chronic lung diseases, and the vast majority of the time — between 70 and 90 percent — patients make mistakes that keep some of the medicine from making it to their lungs,” said Ashutosh Sabharwal, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Rice and co-author of two recent studies about the phenomenon. “While inhalers are the most efficient delivery mechanism for many patients, these devices require deft maneuvers on the part of patients. The common errors are well-known, but fixing them continues to be a challenge.”

Sharon, is this what you ask about? The chamber is an accessory for the medicine dispenser.

Is the turbo the same as a spacer? The device I use is called a spacer.You fit the inhaler into it and inhale slowly. If it makes a whistling noise, you are inhaling too hard,
