Notes:

The Rightbreathe website is an online tool designed to assist with the selection, prescribing and on-going use of inhalers.  It covers all inhaler and spacer devices licensed for asthma and COPD in the UK.  Clinicians should note that the website refers to prescribing pathways in London and these may not be in line with those agreed in Dorset.
