Did you know that most of the Asthma patients do not use their Metered dose inhalers correctly?

Posted Dec 24 2012 5:16pm

Clinical Studies show that 90% of Asthma patients do not remember how to use their inhalers correctly and thereby leading to misuse of inhalers with poor Astrhma control.

There are many reasons why the patients use their inhalers incorrectly, 1) No instructions provided to the patients 2) Lack of time to demonstrate the inhaler technique to the patients 3) Many patients have language barriers and some patients are not able to remember the steps at once. 4) Multiple inhalers create more confusion.

 All these leads to the conclusion that we need a better and more effective mode of patient education on the correct use of inhalers.

 Introducing the new interactive audio-visual online FREE training for Asthma patients- Correct inhaler techniques.

Here is the link:  http://www.use-inhalers.com/

Asthma Educators can save their time by guiding the patients to learn and practice online. Patients can use these educational tools anytime and anywhere at their own comfort.
