Here are some of the percentages showing how much (or how little) of the inhaled medicine you get using different devices

- Blue inhaler <10%
- Aerochamber 25-60%
- Spacer 50-85%
You will see that with both spacers you get up to 6o or 85% of the medicine into your child’s lungs. that means that you lose approx 15 – 40% of the medicine from every puff. This is normal, so don’t worry if you see some vapour coming out of the end of the spacer or inhaler.
