This study was designed with the rationale to look for the impact of education of proper metered dose inhaler
technique over peak expiratory flow rate among the patients of moderate persistent bronchial asthma.
Management of acute asthma in children using metered dose inhaler
and small volume nebulizer.
Pretreatment values of peak expiratory flow rate varied between 30-47%, 31-48 %, 33-50 % and 33-48 % before giving budesonide by nebulizer (week-2), metered dose inhaler
(week-3), metered dose inhaler
with spacer (week-4) and dry powder inhaler (week-5) respectively.
A metered dose inhaler
should be used with an inhalation that is slow and the start of this manoeuvre should coincide with the release of a dose by pressing the top of the canister.
This transition to non-CFC aerosol delivery systems is apparent in new pulmonary inhaler devices such as hydro-fluoroalkane-pressurized metered dose inhalers
(HFA p MDIs) and dry powder inhalers (DPIs).
Specific instruction is provided on proper utilization of asthma medication, use of a metered dose inhaler
and peak flow meter, creation of an asthma action plan and maintenance of an asthma journal.
If so, then there's a good chance he isn't using his metered dose inhaler
What determines whether an elderly patient can use a metered dose inhaler
Salbutamol, a bronchodilator, has been available for years in tablet, metered dose inhaler
and other formulations.
Food and Drug Administration granted approval of its New Drug Application for Primatene MIST, which is delivered by a metered dose inhaler
with a non-chlorofluorocarbon propellant.
Critical errors found during metered dose inhaler
technique demonstration by pharmacists.
