"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."
Ricci Peterman, RN
"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."

"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 medicines with good results. Continuing education in the proper use of inhalers is important for all including physicians, nurses, therapist and patients."
Diane Doebley, BS, RRT
"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."

Diane K. Reist
"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 re-admissions 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."

"So many times we hear about patients showing up in the emergency room with breakthrough wheezing only to find out they are using inhalers incorrectly. When we teach Respiratory Care students we try to stress the importance of educating and re-educating the patient in proper techniques. I have to say, I have actually taught Respiratory Care pharmacology many times so I was very impressed with how the program was executed. The animations, graphics and interactive training were all very well done. It would serve not only patients but would be an excellent supplement when teaching students."

"Very well done. Informative for RT’s and for patients!"
Jeffrey Keener, RRT
"Use-inhalers.com education videos are a welcome addition to our asthma toolkit. We utilize the videos in our clinic with our patients on device training and correct inhaler techniques. It provides step-by-step instructions with audio and visual aids. Patients can practice along with the videos and/or view themselves performing the technique side by side with the video if they have an iPad or a camera on their computer. My advice is to familiarize yourself with the videos, try it and start supplementing your patient training by using Use-inhaler.com education videos!"

"Education on inhaler use and delivery devices is needed on a continual basis. I often find that patients are not correctly using their inhalers appropriately and clinicians are not teaching correct nor effective use. Our patients will receive effective treatment from inhalers by having trained clinicians educate them properly. I thoroughly enjoyed this in service and will share it with colleagues in my hospital."
Chrishuna R. Vasser, CRT
Dr. LeRoy Graham
"As a practicing pediatric pulmonologist and the medical director of Not One More Life, Inc (www.notonemorelife.org), 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."
Dr. LeRoy Graham
"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!."

"As an asthma educator, I am always looking for new resources to keep current on the correct administration techniques for dry powder and metered dose inhalers. 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. With the current and future expansion of the number of drugs available as inhalers, this site promises to make a large contribution to better asthma outcomes and improved patient care when using inhaled 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. This can be an adjunct useful to physicians, nurses and asthma educators, who could have the patient view the video prior to face-to-face instruction, which should decrease the amount of face time required, and it can also be used by patients as a reference to review at home until the skills are mastered."
