Interventions to improve inhaler technique for people with asthma
Post date: Mar 18, 2017 7:14:31 AM
Although interventions to improve inhaler technique may work in some circumstances, the variety of interventions and measurement methods used hampered the authors’ ability to perform meta-analyses and led to low to moderate confidence in findings. Most included studies did not report important improvement in clinical outcomes. Guidelines consistently recommend that clinicians check regularly the inhaler technique of their patients; what is not clear is how clinicians can most effectively intervene if they find a patient's technique to be inadequate, and whether such interventions will have a discernible impact on clinical outcomes.
