Overusing Over the Counter Puffers?
For the first time, we have access to research regarding a hidden population of Australians who buy their asthma puffers over-the-counter. A study from the University of Sydney and the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research reveals that Australian asthmatics are overusing their reliever medication with concerning results. Some of these being a mismanagement of asthma conditions and a delay of accurate asthma diagnosis. To learn more we were joined by Professor Sinthia Bosnic-anticevich, respiratory pharmacist from the University of Sydney.
