Administration of medication via a Metered Dose Inhaler


This handheld device is a convenient mode of delivering accurate dosages of medication to a person’s lungs.  Used correctly there is very little wastage and limited likelihood of experiencing adverse side effects.

    A metered does inhaler (MDI) consists of a pressurised canister inside a plastic mouthpiece.  A chemical propellant is used to administer medication as a directed, fine mist into the client’s air passage.  The method still requires that the client inhale the medication correctly to ensure efficient delivery to the lungs.
