Jon Bell will be holding a workshop on inhaler techniques, inhalers and their carbon footprints.
A 60 minute presentation slide set summarises the key differences between DPIs and MDIs with audience participation in both aiding discussion around:
- What factors might influence the newer inhaler designs.
- How documenting the inhalation of patients with mild to very severe disease helps research scientists analyse inhaler performance; the development of an “electronic lung” that mimics the different ways in which patients breathe in through their devices.
- Recent initiatives reducing the environmental impact of using inhalers, whether DPI or MDI.
- The impact that training and training tools can have on outcomes for both patients and health providers.
