How to Use Your Inhaler
Have you been diagnosed with asthma? If so, then you may have questions about the right way to operate an inhaler. Watch this video for some helpful tips on using your inhaler as part of your asthma treatment.
Start by removing the cap and shaking the inhaler for about 5 seconds. Next, exhale completely, look straight ahead, and hold the inhaler as directed by your asthma doctor. Then, put the mouthpiece between your teeth and close your lips around it, or hold it 1 to 2 inches from your mouth. Now, breathe in slowly as you press down once. Finally, remove the inhaler and hold your breath for about 10 seconds before exhaling.
