'7 steps to success' guide to respiratory inhalers available from Leicester Hospitals team

A team at Leicester Hospitals have produced a set of cards providing a '7 steps' guide to all the different types of respiratory inhalers.

The NHS spends just under £1 billion a year on respiratory inhalers, yet many people's inhaler technique is so poor that they are not making the most of their inhalers.

The 7-Steps to Success Inhaler Reminder Cards are an easy-to-use and highly portable reference source to help remind healthcare professionals on how to use each different type of inhaler device. 

The cards were put together by Consultant Pharmacist Anna Murphy in conjunction with East Midlands Respiratory Lead Jane Scullion.

The cards are designed to support the correct instruction of inhaler device technique during patient consultations.  

To simplify the process each inhaler device has 7 steps to achieving optimal technique .....

The cards are produced as a heavy-duty ring bound set with a card for each different type of inhaler. To cover costs, the cards cost £4.95 for each set.
