Demonstrating inhaler technique is an important part of many consultations, such as medicines use reviews, the new medicine service and the chronic medication service.
In C+D's video below, Kingston University's pharmacy teaching fellow Leanne May demonstrates how to use the Breezhaler device and discusses the contents of the demonstration pack.
Cleaning the Breezhaler
You should advise patients never to wash their inhaler with water. If they want to clean their device, tell them to wipe the mouthpiece inside and outside with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth, to remove any powder residue. You should also advise them to keep their inhaler dry.
