Find out why an inhaler works or doesn't work with the help of an artificial lung at the School of Pharmacy.

Do you or someone you know use an inhaler for asthma, or other lung disease? If so, you may wonder why an inhaler sometimes gives the relief you want, but sometimes it doesn't. In this workshop, we'll use an artificial lung to showcase how the way you breathe can affect the medicine's delivery to your lungs. Plus, have your breathing capacity tested and see where and how much of your medicine goes to your lungs when you take a puff from an inhaler. Ultimately, you can find why your inhaler sometimes does not work.

All welcome - use of inhaler not requried.
