Limerick post news asthma society risk

TWO out of three of Limerick’s 18,443 people with asthma may be unknowingly aggravating their condition simply by not using their inhalers correctly. This was the warning from the Asthma Society of Ireland and the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU) this week as they launched an ‘Inhaler Technique’ awareness campaign to encourage people with asthma to ensure that they are using their inhaler device correctly. “More than one person dies every week in Ireland from asthma and 90 per cent of these deaths are preventable. It is estimated that over half of people with asthma in Ireland are not consistently using their device correctly,” Asthma Society chief executive Sarah O’Connor said.
