This course was great! It is a great review for me. It has given me some insights I didn’t take in to consideration before. Thank you offering this course. I have used several of the tips to help with patient educations on the use of inhalers.

"The education given was very informal for patients to understand, patients enjoy seeing the demo being done as they respond and perform much better with a visual. A large number of patients use their inhalers incorrectly, when they start using their inhalers as taught they cannot believe how well they respond and how long their inhalers last. There couldn’t of been an easier way to teach them without having an RT at their side especially when you are the only RT! "

The information given in the MDI and DPI CEU courses I have
already used in teaching my patients in the hospital and home care setting.
It was easy to obtain the CEU's after getting started.
Diane Doebley, BS, RRT
Since reviewing the proper use of inhalers, I have put it into practice. The results were amazing. Patients who were using their inhalers wrong, are now getting their meds with good results. Continuing education in the proper use of inhalers is important for all including physicians, nurses, therapist and patients.

From receiving your new prescription, assembling and priming it for first use, to properly taking the medication, these videos are very helpful and easy to follow.

We had a patient that was prescribed 4 different inhalers with 4 different administration techniques. She has been using them all for quite some time, however on her last admission she admitted that she wasn’t sure she was administering any of them correctly. Because technique is so important and she has had several readmissions due to her COPD exacerbations this looked like a good area for intervention.
We utilized your website to provide pictorial instructions to her so that she could match them to the type of inhaler and as we are a transitional care team that will be following her for at least 30 days after her discharge we are planning on utilizing the video training in her home as well to reinforce the teaching that she was provided in the hospital

As a practicing pediatric pulmonologist,I realize that proper inhaler and device technique is so very critical to successful Asthma and COPD management. Dr. Shetty and her colleagues have developed wonderfully effective videos that clearly empower patients to become active and proficient partners in their own care.

Extremely informative, covers all of the bases, any patient, young or older can understand this. The Ga. Asthma Coalition strongly endorses this video for teaching purpose.

Both I and my office Nurses have been using Use-inhalers videos on how to use an inhaler with our patients. The videos are so well done, and our patients have had only positive comments. It is also great that the patient can look them up at home to keep fine tuning their technique. Thank you for a great educational benefit.

I found this website a definitive resource for teaching my medical and allied health students, my patients, and a place to assure my continued competency as someone who daily demnstrates asthma medications.

The use-inhalers website is a comprehensive tool for training both patients and physicians alike in the proper use of the various inhaler devices on the market, including their variations - such as the open-mouth, closed-mouth, and spacer techniques.
Dr. Amit Panjwani, DM, MD, DNB
I found the tools on UseInhalers website very good for inhalation training. The tools are easy to use and interactive, making inhaler training an engaging process for my patients. I recommend it to my colleagues and students to fine tune their inhalation skills, so that they also can train their patients better.
Dr. Rakesh Gupta MD. Director of Sleep Disorders Center, Providence, RI.
As a busy pulmonary doctor, I know firsthand the challenges in teaching inhaler technique to my patients. Fortunately, we now have the wonderful tools on this website which has made inhaler teaching so much more convenient and effective.

I have seen the common mistakes made by my patients in the use of their inhalers. This website is both informational and interactive and provides the resource my patients need to learn and practice with their inhalers. Use inhalers is an informative and professional web site that is a much needed resource in respiratory care and the health field in general.
