1 doctor agrees

In brief: Either one

When the inhaler is used properly with good technique, it can provide as much bronchodilation as a nebulizer dose.
For those patients with poor coordination, the elderly or very young, the nebulizer may be easier to use.

In brief: Mgt suggestion

I would recommend using the inhaler with a spacer device.
This will allow delivery of the medication and is convenient to use.
