Inhaler Therapy for COPD-An individualised approach to inhaler selection

Inhaler Therapy for COPD An individualised approach to inhaler selection

Adherence and inhaler satisfaction together predict improved health outcomes for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Assessment of a patient’s co-ordination and inspiratory flow patterns should guide selection of inhaler devices. Adherence and device technique should be assessed regularly and before changing a patient’s therapy. Patients should use only one type of device for all of their inhaled therapies, where possible.
