Volumatic asthma inhaler. Eleven year old girl with asthma using an aerosol inhaler with an optimiser volumatic adaptor beside an outdoor swimming pool. The inhaler spray is first delivered into the adaptor, before being breathed into the lungs. In an asthma attack, the tiny bronchiole airways of the lungs become narrowed, making breathing difficult. The inhaler provides a dose of bronchodilator drugs to widen these airways. Volumatic adaptors are often used by children as they find it difficult to inhale the dose in one breath.
