MIDLOTHIAN, Va., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, PARI Respiratory Equipment launched a newly updated continuing education class, Managing Respiratory Patients Through Efficient Aerosol Delivery, rounding out their free learning program with seven classes for respiratory therapists, nurses, case managers, and pharmacists. The updated class allows participants to self-study online, enabling easier access for caregivers to update their skills and receive necessary credits for maintaining licensing. The rest of PARI's classes are designed as group programs and all are pre-approved for continuing education units by the Commission for Case Manager Certification (CCMC), American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC), 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 Respiratory Equipment.
