How to use an inhaler

Published: 26th February, 2014 in: Health Advice News

Every week around 100 people in Doncaster have an emergency admission to hospital suffering from breathing difficulties and a range of other chest and respiratory problems, some of which could be avoided by effectively and routinely using an inhaler.

Prompted by research carried out in South Yorkshire which revealed around 95 per cent of patients who are issued with an inhaler don’t know how to use one properly, the borough’s community based pharmacists are now providing FREE individual training sessions for inhaler users to ensure they get the best results from their medication.
