The AARC has just released a great new educational resource called “A Patient’s Guide to Aerosol Drug Delivery” to help our respiratory patients understand today’s confusing world of aerosol drug delivery.

Book coverThe growing number of aerosol medications and devices coming to market over the past few years has been great for offering various methods of delivering aerosols, but it has also added layers of complexity to educating patients on how to take these medications. As respiratory care professionals, it is vitally important we help our patients learn everything about using their aerosol devices effectively so they can keep their symptoms under control and breathe easier.

This guide, recommended by respiratory care professionals and patients alike, offers clear and simple tips for respiratory patients, as well as provides several diagrams showing how to take aerosol medications correctly.

Please be sure to share this guide with your patients to help them improve their quality of life.
