September—Aerosol Delivery Device

Bookmark and Share

The simple aerosol delivery device is a powerful tool. As stated in an AARC guidebook, “Aerosol therapy continues to be both an art and a science.”

Respiratory therapists are indeed the experts in marrying the art and science of respiratory care. The science of the pharmacology, the physics and anatomy and mathematics of aerosol delivery is paramount, But the art—utilizing proper  technique—is equally important.

Let’s celebrate the Aerosol Delivery Device in September and recognize the RT’s role in using, teaching, and reinforcing their expertise in aerosol therapy.
