Built in controlled resistance (CR)
Flo-Tone CR Trainer is the NEW and improved version of the Flo-Tone Trainer.The Flo-Tone CR Trainer has been carefully engineered to achieve additional functionality; firstly being able to fit all pMDIs, secondly ensuring that the guidance whistle will respond at the same flow rate in all pMDIs, irrespective of their individual resistance.
Can be used as a mini-spacer; pMDI attachment
Can be used as a training aid; for use with a placebo pMDI inhaler
Guides the patient to correct pMDI use (flow rate, co-ordination and duration)
Improves inhaler technique
Fits all pMDIs
Built-in controlled resistance (CR) removes variability of the pMDIs internal resistance
Delivers full lung dose and reduces throat impact
Incorporates tethered mouthpiece cap.
Multiple use; spacer or training aid
Flo-Tone CR Trainer guides patient to correct pMDI use (flow rate, co-ordination and duration). It is used to help patients acquire and retain good inhaler technique.
As a mini-spacer; by attaching the device to an inhaler, drug delivery is improved, while unwanted oropharyngeal deposition is reduced. As a training aid for initial familiarisation with pMDI technique, moving on to the active medication for day-to-day use.
Clear signal to actuate
The built-in whistle produced on inhalation provides a clear positive signal to actuate, helping the patient to understand when they have achieved the correct flow rate for successful drug delivery. Then after actuation, helping them maintain a slow gentle inhalation, to move the medication into the lungs.
