The technique used when completing inhalation therapy will also affect how well the medication is delivered to the airways.
The most common position to be in during inhalation therapy is a supported upright position.
Alternative positioning such as side-lying may be used to target specific areas of the lung.
Different breathing patterns may be required for different types of inhalation therapy. For example:
Nebulised medications: Slow steady breaths with occasional deep breaths are generally recommended.
