How to Use Inhaler


Asthma is one of the top ten killer diseases around the world. Tough it is not curable but it is controllable. Inhaler and epinephrine auto-injector is the most popular and effective medicine to control asthma. Until now no more medicine is invented to cure from asthma.

The most frustration news is that only 16% patients know how to use epinephrine auto injector and only 7% know how to properly use inhaler to control severe asthma. Rest major percentage are taking those medicine improper way to control asthma.

Dr. Rana Bonds recently has taken survey among the asthma patients and he comes to know that most of the asthma patients do not know how use auto injector and inhaler.

Who is responsible for this bad news of using asthma medicine wrongly? I think of course pharmacist , medical representative and  doctors are responsible for this. Patients should insult doctors because they pay doctors directly for for getting service. They do not pay for prescription only. It is doctor's duty to show properly how to use the inhaler and epinephrine.

Patients also should read the instructions which are provided with the pack of inhaler.  To know more about properly using inhaler you may visit the line how to use inhaler
