Podcast - Myth: "I only need my blue inhaler"
This Asthma Myths podcast is part of the Asthma Right Care Campaign.
Dr Katherine Hickman explains the importance of basic asthma care and shares her experience of changing a patient’s life by having a three minute conversation about his blue inhaler overuse.
“Commons myths can form real barriers to effective symptom control, countering these myths is a really important part of our role as health care professionals.”
The truth is people with asthma need to carry their blue inhaler for emergencies only. Daily preventers will keep symptoms at bay.
Asthma Right Care (ARC) is a global social movement created by the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) to drive change and disrupt the status quo in asthma management. Here you'll find podcasts, webinars, practical guidance and patient tools to help improve asthma outcomes.
