PARI Respiratory Equipment, Midlothian, Va, recently launched an updated continuing education class titled “Managing Respiratory Patients Through Efficient Aerosol Delivery.” The free course is PARI’s seventh in a series designed for respiratory therapists, nurses, case managers, and pharmacists.

 The updated class features an online self-study tool designed to allow easier access for users, while the other six courses from PARI are designed as group programs. All courses are pre-approved for continuing education units by the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC), Commission for Case Manager Certification (CCMC), Florida State Board of Nursing, and the California State Board of Nursing.

"PARI’s updated course, ‘Managing Respiratory Patients Through Efficient Aerosol Delivery,’ is a comprehensive program providing free information on the differences between nebulizers, metered dose inhalers, and dry powder inhalers. Understanding how the interactions of patient, delivery device, and drug formulation influence drug delivery is crucial for respiratory clinicians," said Lisa Cambridge, director of clinical development at PARI in an announcement about the course.
