Effects of Instruction on Inhalation Techniques Using iPads - Web Application "Inhalation Lessons"



Effects of Instruction on Inhalation Techniques Using iPads - Web Application "Inhalation Lessons"



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 42(Suppl. 1): 17-19



Instruction on inhalation techniques for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD)and asthma patients being treated with inhalants have sufficient therapeutic effects and are important to maintain adherence. However, problems continue to exist, including time constraints of medical staff that have a large number of patients and a lack of knowledge on inhalation instruction methods. A web application,"Inhalation Lessons,'for the iPad has been developed. It explains inhalation methods, and consists of videos and review tests. Instruction on inhalation techniques was performed using this application for patients that use Diskus, and the effects were examined. As a result, there are significant improvements in the inhalation techniques of patients after viewing the"Inhalation Lessons'application. Uniform instruction on inhalation techniques can be performed even in the field of homecare.
