Designed to assist medical practitioners in assessing inhaler use, whether MDI or DPI, Vitalograph offers the Vitalograph AIM (Aerosol Inhalation Monitor). Mastery of the correct technique will support more accurate drug delivery and good patient compliance, resulting in better disease management and fewer visits to medical professionals. A summary result is displayed to clearly illustrate the difference between good and poor technique. The parts of the inhalation process which a patient has yet to master, including factors that are difficult to observe by eye, are clearly highlighted thereby enabling physicians to concentrate on specific aspects of patient technique. 800-255-6626;

The Pari Vortex holding chamber, from Pari Respiratory Equipment, comes in both adult and pediatric configurations and helps minimize the technique and coordination needed for effective inhaler treatments. The Pari Vortex is a non-electrostatic, metal-valve holding chamber that minimizes static charge and ensures patients receive a more consistent dose of medication.
