Respiratory Nurse

Lung Foundation Australia’s Respiratory Nurse provides evidence-based information and guidance, emotional support and referral advice to local services where appropriate. This free and confidential service will be available from late 2018 via free call 1800 654 301 and email enquiries@lungfoundation.com.au.

Inhaler techniques

Up to 90% of patients with a respiratory condition are not using their inhaler devices correctly1 and therefore aren’t receiving the dose they should. Common errors include improper device preparation, poor coordination during use, inadequate speed and/or depth of inspiration as well as absence of a post-inhalation breath hold.

Lung Foundation Australia has a series of inhaler device technique videos and fact sheets detailing step by step instructions to guide your patients on the correct technique.
