AbstractThe effectiveness of antiasthmatic therapy with metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) is usually limited by defective inhalational technique. This study surveyed the MDI inhalation performance and knowledge of 100 physicians whose performance (demarcated into six stages) and knowledge scores correlated (r = 0.33, p < 0.001). Inhalation performance scores for shaking the canister, full expiration prior to using the MDI, breath holding thereafter, and positioning of the mouthpiece correlated with their corresponding knowledge scores (p ≤ 0.02). Training of physicians entailing actual instruction and supervision of inhalational maneuvers may enhance the ability of doctors to use MDIs and facilitate better patient supervision.
