Inhalers can be prescribed for various reasons, the most popular being asthma. It may be difficult to figure out how to use it for the first time, and this video is here to help. This tutorial will take you step by step through the process of using an inhaler.
You Will Need:
Your prescribed inhaler
Shake the inhaler well before use (3 or 4 shakes).
Remove the cap.
Breathe out, away from your inhaler.
Bring the inhaler to your mouth. Place it in your mouth between your teeth and close your lips around it.
Press the top of your inahler once. Immediately take a slow deep breath, pulling the aerosol deep into the lungs.
