inhaler | R Documentation |

Ezzet and Whitehead (1991) analyze data from a two-treatment, two-period crossover trial to compare 2 inhalation devices for delivering the drug salbutamol in 286 asthma patients. Patients were asked to rate the clarity of leaflet instructions accompanying each device, using a 4-point ordinal scale.
