Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them. Collected my repeat tonight I was expecting to collect a new Aerochamber but instead was given a compact space chamber plus (manufactured by medical developments international) is is some new NHS budget cut. Not impressed I had a quick glance at the enclosed leaflet the spacer has to be primed by either soaking in warm soapy water or administering 6-8 puffs of inhaler. Then it should be washed at least once a week but more often if needed, left to dry and then re-primed, it says it can be washed in the dishwasher but then re primed. It then goes on to say if it is not clear to you how to clean your space chamber plus please ask your healthcare professional! It's really confusing as the initial instructions state o prime it for the first time immerse in warm soapy water or prime with.6-8 puffs but the cleaning instructions tell you to prime it after washing...
Feeling very confused. Has anyone else been changed over to this, and do you understand the cleaning/priming instructions?
Surely priming the spacer weekly with six puffs seems ludicrous I'll end up reordering inhalers fortnightly at that rate!
Ho hum off to clean my old Aerochamber and carry on with that for now
Thanks in advance
