There are mainly three types of inhaler can be found in the market but in Bangladesh availability of DPI is very rare.150 patients were selected for the survey who are using different types of inhaler for a certain duration. Data were placed into excel file and pie charts were created for showing different variables percentage and no DPI user was found. Patients are using MDI and nebulizer more. In terms of cost effectiveness MDI is more preferable than nebulizer. In Bangladesh most of the pulmonary patients are suffering from asthma and women are suffering from pulmonary disease. Many patients are very much confused about their inhaler type and also some of the patients are not aware about their disease. So, it can be said patient education on using inhaler properly is important to control the pulmonary disease and pharmacist should counsel the patient properly so that they can use inhaler by themselves properly for future management of pulmonary disease.
