AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol is supplied as a pressurized lined aluminum canister in boxes of one. Each canister is supplied with a two-piece plastic purple actuator and gray spacer assembly, and tear-off patient's instructions, including a Patient Information and an illustrated Instructions for Using Your AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol.
The following canister sizes are available: 8.9 g net weight, providing 120 metered actuations (trade size, NDC 0456-5550-12); 5.1 g net weight providing 60 metered actuations (hospital size, NDC 0456-5550-63); 5.1 g net weight providing 60 metered actuations (professional sample, NDC 0456-5550-06).
When not in use, keep AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol out of reach of children. Pediatric patients should only administer AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol under adult supervision.
The plastic purple actuator and gray spacer assembly supplied as part of AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol should not be used with any other product canisters; and the actuator from other products should not be used with an AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol canister. Do not separate the purple actuator from the gray spacer. Do not use this product with any external spacer devices.
The labeled amount of medication in each actuation cannot be assured after 120 metered actuations (or 60 metered actuations in the hospital and sample size canisters), even though the canister is not completely empty and will continue to operate. The inhaler (canister plus actuator) should be discarded when the labeled number of actuations have been used. Never immerse the canister into water to determine the amount of formulation remaining in the canister (“float test”).
Store at 25 °C (77 °F); excursions permitted to 15 – 30 °C (59 – 86 °F) [see USP Controlled Room Temperature]. For best results, the canister should be at room temperature before use.
WARNING: Contents under pressure. Do not puncture. Do not use or store near heat or open flame. Protect from freezing temperatures and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Exposure to temperatures above 120°F (49°C) may cause bursting. Never throw into fire or incinerator. Use by children should always be supervised. Avoid spraying in eyes.
AEROSPAN Inhalation Aerosol does not contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
