Check the dose counter to see the number of doses remaining. Holding the diskus properly in both the hands, slide open the diskus
using the thumb grip until you hear a click. Hold the diskus horizontal. Slide the lever downwards, until you hear
a click, to load the dose. Breathe out completely away from the diskus. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and breathe in quickly and deeply. Hold your breath for 10 seconds or as long as you are comfortable
and breathe out slowly. Repeat steps 3 to 6 after 30 seconds, if you have to take another puff.

  1. Very nice. You can also go to the website to learn more techniques on more inhalers or to see it in Spanish. You can understand what happens to your body when you inhale also. There are also inhaler lessons you can take to understand the proper technique. Check it out. It is free. It can only help.

  2. Advair inhaler is a Dry powder inhaler. You should clean the mouthpiece with a soft tissue. Never wash the mouthpiece or any part of your Advair diskus. Always close the Advair diskus after you take your dose and store it in a dry area in flat position.

  4. This is great.  It's my first Advair inhaler due to pneumonia so I really appreciate this step by step because I don't know what I am doing yet.  

  5. after years of using seretide and ventolin without adequate instruction finally ive learned correct methods! did not know it had to be "loaded" horizontally. Did not know when using a spacer to shake ventolin between each dose – oh and to actually have each dose one at a time. doctors are good at prescribing without adequate education of what to do. Thanks for these videos.
