In the treatment of children with obstructive pulmonary disease, the application of drugs is mainly in form of an inhaled therapy. This offers a number of advantages compared to systemic therapy, with fewer side effects and faster onset of reaction. The efficient use depends crucially on the inhaler and the patient's ability to use the system properly. This article compiles a list of possible devices and drugs, summarizes frequent application errors and offers solutions to ensure optimal treatment.
