What else you need to know to keep your clients safe if they take Combivent Respimat

As with many other medications, your clients may be allergic to Combivent Respimat. If you believe that they are having an allergic reaction because they are itching, their face, lips, tongue or throat is swelling; if they are having difficulty breathing, develop a rash or hives, their airway seems to be narrowing (they are having bronchospasms) or are in full-blown anaphylaxis, you need to get them help right away! Some of these symptoms, including anaphylaxis are extremely serious! DO NOT let your client repeat taking the inhaler and get medical help on the scene immediately, if not sooner!
In order to prevent all of this from happening, you need to ensure that your client informs their medical personnel about every medical condition that they are suffering from. They also need to inform them about all medications that they are taking (especially those for heart conditions or ones that treat depression). It is especially important if they have narrow-angle glaucoma, prostate or urinary issues, a history of heart conditions like an irregular heartbeat or high blood pressure, seizures, thyroid disorder, diabetes, low potassium levels, or kidney or liver disease.
You should also be aware that the most common side effects to this particular inhaler include infection of the ears, nose, and throat, runny nose, cough, bronchitis, headache, and shortness of breath. Please note these symptoms and contact their medical physician if or when they occur.
Is this all so necessary? By gosh, yes, if you are still trying to prove to your client that With Age Comes Respect.
