Low Carbon Salbutamol Inhalers

Standard inhalers used to treat asthma contribute a significant proportion of the carbon footprint of the NHS.

The commonly used inhalers (called MDIs = meter dose inhalers) have a  20-40 times higher carbon footprint than the more environmentally friendly inhalers (called DPIs = dry powder inhalers, or soft mist inhalers).

You could make a significant contribution to reducing the carbon footprint of the NHS by changing to a low carbon impact inhaler.

You can read more information about this, provided by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence), via this link: NICE Asthma Inhaler Patient Decision Aid for Statins


Dry Powder Inhalers:

The most commonly used environmentally friendly inhalers are the Salbutamol Easyhaler and the Ventolin Accuhaler. If you click on the links below you can see a short video about each of these inhalers.
