What is Rightbreathe and how might patients benefit from it?

Darush Attar-Zadeh explains how the app can help clinicians select the correct inhaler for their patients

It is hard to believe that less than 7 years ago the respiratory market had a handful of inhaler devices and spacers and most practice nurses with a respiratory interest would probably remember the names and the appearance of the most commonly used ones (e.g. Spacers – Volumatic, Aerochamber; inhaler devices – pressurised metered dose inhalers (pMDI), Accuhaler, Handihaler, Turbohaler, Easyhaler and a few others).

The list of inhaled medicines has grown. At the start of 2018, there were 106 treatment options to choose from, in 17 different devices. The influx to the market of new inhalers, spacers and medicines brings added complexity to medicine/device choice and inhaler technique education.
