Understanding Patient Adherence in Chronic Respiratory Disease

Today, millions of people worldwide are affected by chronic respiratory conditions that make it increasingly difficult for them to breathe.

Two of the most prominent conditions are asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Asthma impacts an estimated 334 million people worldwide and has a significant impact on the smallest of patients—children. Around 14 percent of children worldwide experience asthma symptoms, and of these children, only one in 11 is currently receiving asthma treatment.

COPD is an irreversible illness that severely limits lung functionality. As the fourth leading cause of death worldwide, COPD accounts for more than 3 million deaths each year. In the United States, more people die annually from this disease than from breast, colorectal and prostate cancer combined.

While asthma and COPD cannot be cured, proper management can help maintain and improve a patient’s quality of life. Adherence to treatment is essential to optimize outcomes. Adherence and compliance are often used interchangeably, but there is actually a meaningful difference. The word compliance suggests that the health care professional dictates the treatment regimen and that the patient either complies with the provider’s wishes or doesn’t.

What people with asthma should use nebulizers or oxygen at home?

Your dr. knows if you need at home oxygen or a nebulizer, if you have told your dr. everything. Your pulse0ximeter reading should be considered, also. I do have a nebulizer at home and I am on 24/7 oxygen at home. I bought a pulseox machine, as well.

Severe asthma relief.....?

I've been off work for 8 weeks with severe asthma....I have oxygen, nebulisers and steroids at home. I'm under a thoracic consultant to find out what is wrong. Anyone got any ideas on how to get some temporary relief as I'm so fed up with being stuck


I can't give you an instant relief method, but I do know of ways to bringing it down. There is a few things I found out about asthma that was interesting. My late wife had cystic fibrosis and asthma, so I constantly looked around for ways to ease her

I have severe asthma too. I'm on Singular, Albuterol, and Advair. I have had to miss work too because of a severe attack. I just laid around the house, slept, read magazines, and played on the computer. My doctor did tell me once that black coffee
