Are you using your asthma inhaler correctly?
Asthma is a common lung condition that affects the airways and can make it difficult to breathe. It affects 3.4 million people in England and is usually treated by using an inhaler. But, research has shown that a third of people with asthma aren’t using their inhalers correctly. The new patient decision aid from NICE– Inhalers for asthma
aims to tackle this and ensure that people with asthma are aware of the different devices available to them. If you have asthma, the decision aid could help you find out about the options available. It could help you and your healthcare professional decide which inhaler will suit you best. Asthma UK has also published a number of short videos
designed to help you use your inhaler properly.
