Description

'Aerosol therapy in asthma' is a review that focuses on the two main available methods of aerosol delivery: the nebuliser, and a combination of spacer and a pressurised metered dose inhaler. There are significant advantages and disadvantages in aerosol therapy, and the disadvantages are magnified in paediatric subjects. When considering aerosol therapy for children, the practitioner must consider whether the device is suitable for the age group, if the device will be acceptable to the subject, and if the drug combination available for the device will give the desired clinical benefit.

Separation: the young child and their family considers the interrelated challenges of raising a child who can be independent, but is securely attached, meaning they are able to safely and creatively separate with minimal anxiety.
