The Babyhaler is such a heaven sent to us. It is a tubular chamber, wherein the drug aerosol is inserted in a chamber at one end, and a facemask at the other to provide an effective seal.
Our daughter, Summer, has been taking this anti-asthma drug twice a day for the duration of 6 months. She has this for a month now; and there has not been any asthma occurrence since. As a kindergarten 1 pupil she is exposed to a lot of environmental elements which could trigger colds and cough which will then lead to asthma, as always the case. But currently, she has not incurred any of these despite intermingling with so many pupils in school, and the erratic weather we have at present. Prior to taking this medication, there was not a day that Summer was free of colds. And it was a constant distress to all of us, knowing that the moment it will develop into cough, the inevitable will surely happen.
The Babyhaler is truly a gift. Now, there are no more frantic, late night drives to the hospital for a nebulizer. The nebulizer could be ineffective especially for infants and toddlers as this requires to be inhaled for 10 to 12 minutes at least. This requires the cooperation of the patient which is quite difficult to ask from infants and toddlers. Summer was barely 5 months old when she had the first asthma attack. Wearing the steam-emitting over-sized facemask for 10 to 12 minutes was really frightening for her.
Now with the Babyhaler our daughter Summer has been doing a lot of things that normal kids do. Who ever invented this contraption, I guess I can speak for all asthmatics, we truly owe you a lot.
