I wonder who would get this kind of inhaler. I absolutely don’t want to start a political debate but when so many people are being switched to cheaper inhalers this sounds like something expensive. In theory it sounds like a great idea, though would also require decent internet. It reminds me of pacemakers that relay their information to the hospital. 👍

I would think the new inhailers would pay for themselves by pinpointing over use or underuse, like anything though to do with technology I'm sure things will go wrong lol

Lots of the websites I looked at have a photo of the blue ventolin inhaler, they're obviously just using a stock photo 🙄 The actual one is red. Designed to be used without a spacer 🤔 The instructions for the app seem complicated (to me anyway) maybe because I don't know how to scan a code thingy. I don't suppose it'll ever become standard issue so I really don't need to worry about it! It is a good idea though.
