Abstract

A monitoring system for monitoring the handling of an inhaler comprises a flow measurement device for determining a flow signal that is indicative of a flow rate through the inhaler and a secondary measurement device for determining a secondary signal that isindicative of the handling of the inhaler. An event analyser receives the flow signal and the secondary signal and analyses these signals with regard to temporal correlations. Based on the temporal correlations between the flow signal and the secondary signal, the event analyser determines whether a handling event has occurred. Thereby the likelihood of false handling events being recorded is reduced.
