Summary

It is clear to see that with such a large number of hospitalizations and deaths, appropriate care of respiratory illness such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is very important. As front-line caregivers, we have an opportunity to directly impact the benefits from inhalation therapy by:

  • -Becoming familiar with the various medications and delivery devices

  • -Understanding the instructions for their proper use and storage

  • -Knowing the limitations of specific devices

  • -And recognizing when one of our residents is having difficulty with a particular medication or inhaler device

  • -This program will review the basics of COPD and its treatment, with a focus on the more common inhalation therapies and considerations when administering each type of device.
