Abstract

Nurses caring for patients with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease need a good basic knowledge of the types of inhaler devices available and which may suit, for example, a very young child, an active young person or an elderly patient with dexterity problems. This Study describes the advantages and disadvantages of some commonly prescribed devices.
