A spac­er is a device used for inhala­tion in patholo­gies of the res­pi­ra­to­ry sys­tem for all cat­e­gories of patients, includ­ing young chil­dren and the elder­ly. Ease of oper­a­tion and the use­less­ness of prepa­ra­tion for the pro­ce­dure makes this device in demand and pop­u­lar.

A spac­er is a kind of cham­ber for tran­spi­ra­tion of an inhala­tion agent into the low­est parts of the lungs, there­by enhanc­ing the effect of the pro­ce­dure. Asth­ma suf­fer­ers know that aerosols require syn­chro­niza­tion of inhala­tion and valve depres­sion. The spac­er makes the pro­ce­dure as sim­ple as pos­si­ble even for the small­est chil­dren who are dif­fi­cult to teach how to use the device on their own, all you need to do is shake the med­i­cine bot­tle, insert it into the adapter, spray and inhale through the mouth­piece on the oth­er side.

5 Spacer Philips Respironics OptiChamber Diamond HH1331/00 (1109094)

Spac­er Philips Respiron­ics OptiCham­ber Dia­mond HH1331/00 (1109094)

The OptiCham­ber Dia­mond valve cham­ber is small­er than most tra­di­tion­al devices of this type. The OptiCham­ber Dia­mond design facil­i­tates ther­a­py for patients of dif­fer­ent age groups and improves drug admin­is­tra­tion. The OptiCham­ber Dia­mond fea­tures low-resis­tance inspi­ra­to­ry and expi­ra­to­ry valves that open freely even at low flow rates found in chil­dren. A high­ly vis­i­ble exha­la­tion valve helps to mea­sure the num­ber of breaths and breath hold­ing time. With the OptiCham­ber, more inhaled med­ica­tion can be admin­is­tered. The anti­sta­t­ic mate­r­i­al pro­longs the time the aerosol is in the mask and the patient can inhale it longer. The cam­era mouth­piece facil­i­tates the tran­si­tion from a child’s face­mask to a mouth­piece and allows a 22mm adapter to be attached to the device. The high-flow whis­tle helps teach prop­er breath­ing.

4 Free-breath Baby Flow

Free-breath Baby Flow spac­er

Free-breath Baby Flow was cre­at­ed specif­i­cal­ly for chil­dren under the age of 5, but this does not exclude the pos­si­bil­i­ty of using a spac­er for inhala­tion by adults, because the man­u­fac­tur­er has launched addi­tion­al masks (small, medi­um, large). The vol­ume of the cham­ber is 175 ml, which is opti­mal for the lungs of a child. With the Free-breath spac­er, you can be sure that the exhaled air does not remain inside the device and enter the lungs again.

The cham­ber is made of anti­sep­tic poly­mer­ic mate­r­i­al. In the com­po­si­tion you will not find phtha­lates, latex, bisphenol‑A, which not all man­u­fac­tur­ers can boast of. The device is man­u­fac­tured in accor­dance with GOST, dec­la­ra­tions of con­for­mi­ty can be found in the pub­lic domain. The best steril­i­ty will pro­vide a cap on the mouth­piece. The cuff devel­oped by the com­pa­ny, which ide­al­ly fix­es inhala­tion bot­tles of var­i­ous shapes, will also be a big advan­tage.

3 AeroChamber

AeroCham­ber spac­er

The AeroCham­ber spac­er is sold with masks made of med­ical sil­i­cone in 3 sizes, opti­mal for dif­fer­ent age cat­e­gories, depend­ing on the mod­i­fi­ca­tion, the col­or of the cham­ber design also dif­fers: blue (the largest) — for chil­dren from 5 years old and adults, yel­low — for babies from 1 up to 5 years, red — from birth to 18 months. Bright col­ors will dis­tract the child’s atten­tion for suc­cess­ful inhala­tion. The uni­ver­sal adapter is suit­able for all types of vials.

The spac­er valve opens only when inhal­ing, which pre­vents air from enter­ing the cham­ber dur­ing exha­la­tion. AeroCham­ber deliv­ers drug par­ti­cles no larg­er than 2 microns into the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract, since larg­er ones usu­al­ly remain in the mid­dle of the lungs, not reach­ing the alve­oli. Judg­ing by the reviews, the spac­er is espe­cial­ly com­mon in Ukrain­ian phar­ma­cies, but in Rus­sia it will be more dif­fi­cult to find it, but you can always resort to online stores for aller­gy suf­fer­ers.

2 Air Liquide L’espace

Air Liq­uide L’e­space

The Ital­ian mod­el L’e­space spac­er increas­es the speed and effi­cien­cy of the inhala­tion pro­ce­dure due to the direct but gen­tle deliv­ery of the drug to the low­er bronchus. The 240 ml con­i­cal cham­ber is made of soft envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly sil­i­cone and is even dish­wash­er safe. The reviews write that a good deci­sion of the man­u­fac­tur­ers was to add a case to the pack­age, which helps to keep the spac­er clean when trans­port­ed in a bag.

The mod­el is high­ly effec­tive even dur­ing the most severe asth­ma attacks, because its wide valve, regard­less of the inten­si­ty of inspi­ra­tion, trans­ports the drug to the lungs. There are sev­er­al mod­i­fi­ca­tions of the spac­er in the assort­ment, for exam­ple, if the device will be used by a child, then the best choice would be mod­els with adap­tive masks, there are only 3 of them: for babies under 2 years old, for babies from 2 to 6 years old and for chil­dren from 6 years old.



The Ger­man-qual­i­ty spac­er is famous for its unique cyclone tech­nol­o­gy, which breaks the drug into tiny par­ti­cles due to sil­i­cone swirls inside the struc­ture. The adap­tive adapter fits a vari­ety of bot­tle shapes. Numer­ous pos­i­tive reviews con­firm the effec­tive­ness and ben­e­fits of the Pari VORTEX spac­er, not­ing that the deliv­ery of inhala­tion prod­ucts is as sim­ple as pos­si­ble, and after the pro­ce­dure there is no cough and dis­com­fort in the throat.

The cham­ber has anti­sta­t­ic prop­er­ties for bet­ter dos­ing of the med­i­cine, and the pro­tec­tive cap ensures steril­i­ty. There are also mod­els for chil­dren, which are sup­plied with a mask: orange “Lady­bug” — for new­borns, green “Frog” — from 2 years. More­over, man­u­fac­tur­ers have gone fur­ther and cre­at­ed a device for using the spac­er with one hand. Pari VORTEX received a reg­is­tra­tion cer­tifi­cate from Rosz­drav­nad­zor.
