Abstract: 
Inhalers are one of the most important medicines in respiratory illness. According to the studies, most of the patients could not handle them correctly; hence, the current study designed to determine what factors are effective on correct handle of inhalers.During April to September 2011, all of the male COPD patients who were admitted to the internal medicine ward of an academic hospital have been selected sequentially. The inclusion criteria were age over 18 and independent use of spray. Inhaler handling was observed and assessed by the pre-defined checklist. Using SPSS Ver.13, the data were analyzed by the descriptive, and analytical statistical methods like ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation coefficient and multiple linear regression.The analysis showed that only 13% (n=15) of all of 116 participants used their inhalers completely correct. The studied factors of age (p<.05, r=.47), education (p<.05, r=.53) and history of inhaler usage (p<.05, r=.52) were only able to explain 8, 12 and 16 percent of correct handling of inhaler variances, respectively.It seems that correct training of the patients who use inhalers, is vital in every medical and/or health system. Based on the findings, it would be wise to teach and train the inhaler users, according to their backgrounds like age, education and history of the inhaler usage.
