The Bloom Credit Card Size Inhaler

Considering the design of the inhaler has not changed since it was invented in 1957, we are long overdue for a revolutionary breakthrough. Say hello to Bloom, an inhaler the size of a credit card that can easily fit into a wallet.

Traditional inhalers are nice in that they are small, lightweight, easily portable. Yet they are still bulky, and -- let's face it -- they are easy to forget. How about an inhaler that is always with you, snug nice and secure inside your wallet. When you need it all you do is open your wallet and there it will be. 

Now, the idea here is you purchase a regular inhaler. You take out the cannister and insert it into the top of the Bloom inhaler. You then squirt it six times. Bloom saves the medicine without wasting any of it. Now you place Bloom inside your wallet for safe keeping. Six puffs will be available whenever you need them. No need to worry about forgetting your inhaler. No need for stuffing that bulky inhaler inside your pocket. 

The product does cost $40, so it may be more of a fashion product at this point, only reserved for those with the desire to look cool. Still, it is available for anyone who uses an inhaler. Considering over 300 million people worldwide have asthma, and millions more have other lung diseases and need an inhaler, there are many potential customers for such an interesting product. 

When you need it, you just take it out of your wallet and use it as you would any inhaler with the open mouth technique. Of course here in lies a problem with this device, is that you cannot use it with a spacer. Still, if you are in a crunch, or if you are mainly concerned with fashion, this would be an ideal inhaler. Or, considering most people don't use inhalers correctly anyway, what difference does it make. 

The Bloom is compatible with any metered dose inhaler. It's a neat concept, anyway, worthy of consideration. If you want to learn more, click on over to

Please note that this is not an endorsement of the product. This is just a post letting you know that people are working on new and improved inhaler designs to make life better for those of us who need to have a rescue inhaler on hand at all times.
