Thank you for your review of the NEJM study of CPAP. I work as a RT in the states and this type of therapy has become somewhat of a mania in the US. I have heard many highly questionable claims regarding its use in my Con Ed classes. I think it is also interesting that this therapy has become quite a money maker for our health care system. Hummm
Reply to: Episode 323: LABA and steroids in asthma – is there any risk?
Thanks for another great podcast! When buying some heart worm medicine for my dog I discovered that the on line pet supply companies sell all kinds of drugs for dogs, often at 10-20% of the "human" price. The best deals seem to be for inhalers. (combivent $55-costs $390 for humans; flovent $35-costs $260 for humans). My only question is how the heck do you get a dog to properly use an inhaler (when I struggle to get my human patients to use them properly)? And btw, these pet companies allow human doctors to write the Rx- they dont seem to care if you are a vet or not. So for U.S. doctors you can save your patients a lot of $$$.
