Demonstration devices

I have set up an asthma clinic in the school where i work and it is going quite nicely at the moment and i have some fantastic resources thanks to asthma uk however i feel i cud do so much better with morre, ideally i would like demonstration devices for the various inhalers but am having difficulty accessing them from the drug companies as we are not directly linked to a doctors surgery so have no one to sign for them! we are a boarding school so i feel that proper care of my pupils is vital, can anyone help me?

How about contacting the GP surgery that covers your school? If it's anything like our surgery it will have quite a lot of demonstrators floating about and may be able to spare you a few. They may very well be interested in helping out if you are planning to do some asthma education as this will be helping them out too!

Have you also considered having a epipen trainer device? You may not have any children needing them at the moment but in this day and age of increased allergies it may be a good idea for the staff to know how to use it. They can be pbtained from the epipen.co.uk site, I think.
