LiteAire® MDI Holding Chamber

Holding Chamber

LiteAire® MDI Holding Chamber

The LiteAire® collapsible MDI holding chamber is an innovative alternative to other holding chambers. The unique dual-valved design delivers pop-up convenience and effective drug output at a fraction of the cost of most plastic holding chambers.

In most clinical settings, the LiteAire holding chamber can reduce costs by replacing existing rigid plastic holding chambers or inefficient spacers with a paperboard alternative. The unique paperboard design allows the LiteAire to be reused by a patient over multiple doses while meeting, and often exceeding, the performance of plastic holding chambers.
