1. Packaging for Asthma inhalers

Patients with asthma usually need to use two different inhalers. One is to reduce the chance of lung-infections, and the other one is to give immediate relief when an asthma attack occurs. These inhalers should not be confused. The following packs were dispensed in 2004 in the Netherlands. Can you tell which one should be used in case of an asthma attack?























This package was given to a patient five years later in 2009. This is the one that must be used in case of an attack. Where on the label is that mentioned? Is that really clear enough for patients who have an asthma attack?






















And these were given to a 76-year old lady in 2014.





Any progress?
