I saw this mentioned on page 14 of Allergic Living's winter 2009 issue. We have been using the AeroChamber Max, which has a similar mouthpiece but is apparently bigger. Does anyone here use the AC Boyz/Girlz valved holding chamber? If so, how does it compare to the other chambers?

Also, I assume it's suitable for my 11-year old? The product literature says 5+ (like the AeroChamber Max).

I got one of these for my 9 1/2 yr old asthmatic daughter. It is a lot narrower and shorter than the aerochamber max. For her, that means that it is easer for her to bring to school with her emergency inhailer, isn't as bulky, and is actually easier for her to hold and use on her own. It is also "cooler" and more "fun" according to her - and she is at that age where these types of things are beginning to matter more. Plus, the cost wasn't bad - it was only about $32 or so - I didn't bother my dr for a script for it, and didn't bother getting reimbursed from my drug plan for it either.

We also have an aerochamber max, at home, that we use for her regular maitenance meds. I think it's easier having two separate aerochambers for each type of med anyhow, and since she doesn't usually need to bring her maitenance med with her - just her rescue one, the a/c girlz was a great choice for her!

Thanks for the feedback. I did end up purchasing the AC Boyz for my son and he absolutely loves it (same feedback as your daughter's). I got a script for it and got reimbursed through the drug plan.
