I have a question. How can you protect your inhaler from heat and cold? I take my ventolin wherever I go because I never know when I will need it but the temperatures here in montreal go from -25 celcius to +35
I know that these temperatures are not good for my inhaler. Do any of you know of a pocket (or any other device) that can be used to protect the inhaler from extreme temperatures?

thank you

There are a couple things you can try. Buy a thinsulate mitten/glove, put your inhaler in it and keep it close to your body. Or if you have inner pockets, use the mitten/glove with your inhaler in it, and put a toasty toes (air activated charcoal) to help heat the pocket (do not put this in the mitten/glove - but the pocket itself). The reason you would want the inhaler in the glove for this is so the inhaler doesn't get too warm from the charcoal.
