The unique Vitalograph AIM™ (Aerosol Inhalation Monitor) is designed to assist medical practitioners in assessing inhaler use, whether MDI or DPI. Mastery of the correct technique will support more accurate drug delivery and good patient compliance, resulting in better disease management and fewer visits to medical professionals.
I was lecturing and chairing a day on inhaler devices for respiratory physicians. We had a few of the new AIM devices available and these were great in helping us demonstrate correct inhaler device technique; and to provide the doctors with a 'hands-on' opportunity to learn how to do so themselves.

The AIM is a really useful means of training patients to use their inhalers properly, and should be an essential part of a respiratory clinician’s kit in the future if we are to improve compliance and concordance in our patients.

With both asthma and COPD the appropriate choice and correct use of inhalers is essential for the effective management of the condition and its symptoms. Anything that can help demonstrate correct technique is useful and it is here that the AIM machine can play an important part in helping to ensure that patients are using the right device, in the right way, to gain maximal benefit from inhaled therapies.
