Researchers randomly assigned study participants to one of the two strategy groups and assessed them on how well they could use a rescue inhaler at three different times: one during their method session, and again 30 and 90 days later. The results showed there were lower incidences of inhaler misuse in the teach-to-goal group than the brief-instruction group following the education session, 11 and 60 percent, respectively. The teach-to-goal group also had fewer health events that required critical care within 30 days of inhaler education.
The bottom of the Asthma Inhaler Spacer is flat for convenience. The anti-static holding chamber is ideal for aerosol medications, because it delivers a consistent dosage every time. These Spacers for Inhalers will help the patient to obtain proper breathing habits due to a high-flow whistle feature. Spacers are available with or without LiteTouch Spacer Masks, which are designed to improve medication delivery. The masks include soft-touch technology that create a comfortable, contoured seal around the mouth and nose. This seal reduces medication leakage and waste, and anyone can use the masks without any special technique. Masks come in three sizes and are made of polycarbonate silicone.
