A spacer is a device that you attach to a metered-dose inhaler before you take medication. It helps deliver medicine to the airways and the lungs instead of to the mouth or throat. A spacer can also make your inhaler easier to use and it can reduce the risk of side effects. Ask your healthcare provider if a spacer is right for you.
