Which Method is More Effective in Aerochamber Training in Pediatric Age Group?

Mehmet Yaşar ÖZKARS [1] , Serkan KIRIK [2]


Objective: Spacer and metered-dose inhaler use is widespread especially among pediatric population. In children, training in medication use is provided both for the family and the child. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether this training is well comprehended and which training method is more effective to achieve that goal.

Methods: This study included patients presenting to our outpatient clinic who were in need of spacer and metered-dose inhaler use. The study subjects had an age range of 2-16 years. The patients were randomized into two groups. The first group was trained on metered-dose inhaler use by video demonstration. The second group was trained by applied verbal training. They asked to use spacer and metered-dose inhaler, and they were rated from 0 to 6, as in previous studies. Errors and deficiencies of use were re-explained. They were informed about their scores and were told that they would be rated again in the next follow-up appointment. They were asked again to use spacer and metered-dose inhaler and rated between 0 and 6 at the second-month control visit.

Results: The intra-group analysis of the video group showed a significant difference between the first-month and second-month total scores (p<0,01). The intra-group analysis of the verbal training group also showed a significant difference between the first-month and second-month total scores (p<0,01).

Conclusion: In conclusion, we demonstrated the positive effect of actively inclusion of patients with asthma into the training about spacer and metered-dose inhaler use. We ensured active participation by exam motivation. Here in we aimed to contribute to the existing literature.
