What is a Funhaler?
Abstract. A novel asthma spacer device, the “Funhaler”, incorporates incentive toys which are isolated from the main inspiratory circuit by a valve. Here we show that its use does not compromise drug delivery.
Is spacer and Aerochamber the same?
A holding chamber or “spacer”, such as an Aerochamber® helps your child use a metered dose inhaler (MDI). Metered Dose Inhalers are used to get medicine directly into the lungs where it is needed. This allows the medicine to work quicker than the same type of medicine taken by liquid or pill form.
What is an asthma spacer called?
A valved holding chamber is a type of spacer that includes a one-way valve at the mouthpiece. This device does more than provide “space” between your mouth and the medicine. It also traps and holds your medicine, which gives you time to take a slow, deep breath. This allows you to breathe in all of the medicine.
How is Chaney’s study useful?
+ Usefulness – despite the lack of generalisability of the study, the study is useful because it suggests that behaviourist techniques can be used to enhance adherence to medical regimes, however, more research is needed to confirm this.
How does Chaney link to the developmental area?
How does Chaney’s study link to the developmental area? Chaney investigates how children learn and change behavior. In this case it looks at ways to improve children’s behavior via operant conditioning.
What are different types of spacers?
Types of spacer There are several different brands of spacer that fit different inhalers and are available on prescription (including Volumatic, AeroChamber, Able Spacer, Space Chamber Plus, and A2A spacer).
What is the difference between a spacer and a holding chamber?
A spacer does not suspend the medication, so you must still coordinate your breath to begin slightly before actuating the MDI. However, a valved holding chamber uses a one-way valve to trap and suspend particles of medication long enough to be inhaled over a period of a few seconds.
What is Lee et al?
Chinese and Canadian Children’s Evaluations of Lying and Truth Telling: Similarities and Differences in the Context of Pro and Anti-Social Behaviours.
How does Chaney’s Funhaler study illustrate the behaviourist perspective?
Chaney’s study looked at the effect of self-reinforcement in complying with using the funhaler through spinning toys and a whistle. So therefore the main influence on the children’s behaviour were from the environment and weren’t a result of nature.
