COMPARISON OF APPLICATION TECHNIQUE OF METERED-DOSE INHALER AND DISKHALERS TO ASTHMATIC PATIENTS

By Vesna Pantovic and Tatjana Jokic

Abstract

There are different applying methods of inhalation therapy to asthmatic patients. Having examined 34 asthmatic patients during two months, we compared their capabilities to use correctly metering and dozing inhaler and disc. During the first examination, 66,7% of probationers have made even one mistake at using the metering and dozing inhaler. At the second examination, the biggest percentage of probationers have made less mistakes at using the disc than metering and dozing inhaler (p<0,02). The patients rather use disc than metering and dozing inhaler
