Benefits of inhalers

Inhalers are an effective way of delivering medication to small airways.

This reduces systemic or whole body effects. A lower dose is required using an inhaler rather than an oral steroid. Inhalers are both safe and cost-effective.

However they will only work if the correct technique is used.

Inhalers come in three main forms:

  • Metered dose inhalers (MDI).
  • Breath activated aerosol inhalers.
  • Dry powder inhalers.
