Abstract

Understanding the advantages and limitations of inhaler devices for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease helps clinicians in choosing the proper device for the individual patient's clinical needs and preferences. However, with the wide range of permutations of drug combinations now possible, inhaler selection remains challenging. For all inhaler devices, adequate training for patients on how to use their device is required to achieve optimal therapeutic benefits.
