can't you just get one with a reusable mouthpiece from the GP? that's all i've ever been given, by GPs and my hospital consultant! I'd ask, they're much easier as they'replastic so you can wash them!

If the AeroChamber is the blue one with the harmonica then it's the smallest one i've heard of, i always carry a handbag so i'm ok! check websites like ebay, if theres one in the world it'll probably turn up there eventually, then you can ask your GP about it! good luck!


Same as Soph really. The peak flows I've been prescribed by cons, GPs and nurses have always had a plastic washable mouthpiece with them. And I have an Aerochamber plus spacer which is blue and is the smallest spacer I've seen.


thanks i going to see my gp 2mor i ask him thanks guys mat :)
