Try to Keep Patients on the Same Type of Inhaler Device
Only one in three patients use their inhaler correctly...which can increase the risk of hospitalization.
Identify patients who may benefit from additional education. Ask your pharmacist or nurse to help educate to avoid common inhaler errors.
Incorrect dose preparation can occur because directions differ with metered-dose (MDI), dry-powder (DPI), and soft-mist (SMI) inhalers.
