So that’s how you use it: How effective is education on inhaler use?

Tuesday, January 25th, 2022

This editorial discussed the results of a trial that evaluated the effectiveness of education on MDI technique. Use of the Vitalograph AIM was examined, including its utility for collecting objective data on correct/effective inhaler technique.
