Asthma UK Study Revealed That People Use Inhalers Improperly

London, United Kingdom – We all know we immediately need to give treatment to those who are suffering from Asthma and other allergies. However, are we really giving the right kind of treatment that they need? According to Asthma UK, most often than not, Asthma patients are usually given stronger inhalers than what they really need. There is also a study conducted by Allergy UK that resulted to a conclusion that people are usually struggling with the instructions on auto-injectors that can be found in allergy emergencies.

The charities are now demanding for a better training for NHS staff and patients due to the Asthma UK and Allergy UK’s findings. This is to ensure that the treatment that will be given to the patients will have the amount of dosage that they need.

A warning came when there was a study in US that revealed that only 16 percent of those prescribed auto-injectors are used properly. The percentage is very alarming, considering the fact that it is not even quarter of the total number of auto-injectors out there. The same study also revealed that only seven percent of all Asthma sufferers are using inhalers the right way. This is much even worse than the statistics revealed about the use of auto-injectors.

According to Dr. Rana Bonds, the study leader, the results of their study suggests that people are not properly trained on how to use the device and some people just usually forget to read the instruction.  According to Maureen Jenkins, the Allergy UK’s clinical director, she is not surprised about the findings of Asthma UK and Allergy UK.

Jenkins also added that people definitely need to be instructed on how to use their inhalers and auto-injectors. She said there are different kinds of inhalers and auto-injectors out there. Therefore, people should be given instruction on how to use the one that they own to avoid using it improperly.
