Abstract

Hydrofluorocarbons, the propellants used in metered dose inhalers, are powerful greenhouse gases. However, this review investigates the use of metered dose inhalers which continue to be on the rise in Denmark despite evidence that most patients are treated equally well with dry powder inhalers. If the use of metered dose inhalers in Denmark were reduced to approximately the level seen in Sweden it would lead to a reduction in CO2e comparable with the emissions from the electricity used in 16,500 typical Danish households.
