Really useful, thank you! Especially useful to know that for those patients who require a LAMA or LABA/LAMA, but can't generate the in-flow for a DPI, the soft-mist inhalers provide an option that is lower carbon than an MDI but uses the same inhalation technique. And also really like the infographic showing the effect of different measures to reduce environmental impact of inhalers.
