Caption

Eight year old boy using an inhaler with an aerochamber spacer to treat asthma. Asthma causes breathing difficulties due to the contraction of the airways in the lungs. The pump dispenses 100 micrograms of the corticosteroid drug beclometasone dipropionate (previously beclomethasone dipropionate) per dose as a prophylactic to decrease inflammation in the lungs. This pump uses a non-CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) propellant.
