Why Thayer Medical’s LiteAire Holding Chamber?
LITEAIRE FEATURES: stores flat, pops up for use, and collapses for storage until reused or disposed. A 184cc Holding Chamber, a clear viewing window, both inhalation and exhalation valves and labeled for one week’s use.
SAVINGS: Savings are realized by matching each clinical application to a holding chamber meeting the needs of that use: Use plastic holding chambers where needed and the lower-cost LiteAire where it meets the clinical needs. The savings is achieved by selecting the LiteAire for each clinical use where appropriate and encouraging patient compliance.
CALCULATING SAVINGS: Hospital systems may purchase a variety of holding chambers at different price points from several vendors. Compare the total amount spent, the average price paid and how usage is allocated over different clinical applications. For applications where the LiteAire meets the clinical needs, the per unit savings is estimated as the difference in the price currently paid and the price for Thayer’s LiteAire at $2.95 each.
NON-MONETARY BENEFITS: Our customers report the LiteAire reduces both storage requirements and the volume and type of materials to be disposed. For clinical applications with ambulatory patients the LiteAire offers portability

WHERE USED: Hospital systems tell us they use the LiteAire in a variety of clinical settings where MDI holding chambers are needed for a short period of time.
