Asthma inhalers and spacers

Asthma inhalers and spacers


Are you familiar with all the various asthma inhalers and spacer devices?

Do your patients sometimes forget to bring them to an appointment and you try to guess which one they are talking about?

We have updated our Asthma inhalers and spacers photo-board

There are also links to this from the asthma Clinical Practice Guideline and I have also put a link on the Gen Med Clinical Resources page. Look under Asthma devices photoboard


I’m grateful to Jeffrey Ong (Clinical Pharmacist), and Noel Cranswick (Clinical Pharmacologist) for their help

I hope you find it useful.
