I think it is ridiculous and insolent that our rescue inhalers were changed from cold-blast to HFAs over a decade ago to "prevent CFCs" from entering the atmosphere. Now, our rescue inhalers are being potentially attacked again, while the most obvious and gargantuan polluters, the military and the agricultural and oil industries, are allowed to continue their practices on a global scale. The diminutive puffs from inhalers, most of which end up inside of our lungs, represent but a tiny...

@Tia74 and @AllergyKid2006 - it looks like these types of devices are not currently covered by insurance. At least one existing device has a program to provide them free for patients who qualify. So, I think it will be a wait and see to know how this one will be priced or if there will be a patient assistance program.
