In-Check Flo-Tone Inhaler Trainer
94% of healthcare professionals inhale too fast when demonstrating how to use a standard Pressurised Metered Dose Inhaler (pMDI). Inhaling too fast means only half the dose reaches the lungs.
The In-Check Flo-Tone Inhaler Trainer from Clement Clarke is a simple solution to the co-ordination difficulties that many patients face when using an inhaler. The Flo-Tone attaches to a standard pMDI (the patient's own device or a placebo), and emits an audible signal to indicate that the correct inhalation rate.
The Flo-Tone can be cleaned easily using warm soap and water and left to dry.
The pMDI is a widely used popular inhaler format, yet many patients do not use their inhalers correctly due to a range of factors, including:
- Inhaling too rapidly
- Inability to co-ordinate actuation correctly
The need to get patients to inhale correctly is now widely recognised. There are many dedicated sessions at respiratory conferences. The publication of the ERS/ISAM guidelines has highlighted this problem, and the In-Check Flo-Tone is the ideal solution.
- Fits any standard pMDI
- Emits an audible tone when correct inhalation is achieved
- Can be cleaned with soap and water
