Different asthma medicines use different asthma devices. There are three different types of devices for asthma medicines.
Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI)
Dry Powder Inhalers (6 years+)
Soft Mist Inhaler
In order to create practical tools for families that increase their success with ALL their asthma devices, we make minor deviations in our device technique instructions from the instructions in individual product monographs. These changes have been widely discussed with Certified Respiratory Educators in the Calgary Zone and provincial representatives on the Alberta Health Services provincial pediatric asthma pathway committees.
