Remove the cap from the inhaler. Remove the cap from the spacer. Shake the inhaler well for 5 seconds. Insert the inhaler into the open end of the chamber. Ensure that
the inhaler fits properly. Sit-up straight or stand up. Tilt your head back slightly. Before starting to inhale breathe out completely away from the spacer. Place the mouthpiece between your teeth and seal your lips tightly
around it, press the inhaler once and breathe in slowly and deeply. Hold your breath for 10 seconds or as long as you are comfortable
and breathe out slowly. Repeat steps 3 to 10 after 30 seconds, if another
dose is required.

  1. MDI with Aerochamber is the ideal way to use your MDI inhaler to get maximum benefit from your inhaled medicine.

  4. DR. pls help me. when i breathe in through my mouth, should i suck๏ปฟ in the medicine the same way i drink juice with a straw? I have doubts on how to breathe in through mouth.

  5. So I was prescribed an inhaler but I don't have asthma or trouble breathing. Doctor said it was mainly for my throat. Is it safe to use with that being said?

  6. have an inhaler but I don't know how to use it either it's hard when u got braces like me and happy valitimes when it comes up๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’—

  7. Hi UseInhalers Correctly, I just want to inform you that it is incorrect to only classify aerosols as MDI's as all medicated devices used for asthma are all metered dose inhalers, including turbuhalers such as Seretide and Symbicort and Accuhalers (Diskus) such as Advair. The more correct term for aerosols that are used for spacers is pMDI (pressurised metered dose inhalers). It is a common mistake in much literature to classify pMDI's as the only MDI's when DPI's are also technically metered dose inhalers.

  8. Anyone with experience with spacers, have you found that you get more of the medication using the spacer, or do you get more of the medication when just using the inhaler itself? I've been using a spacer the DR gave me, but don't really feel like I need it. I saw that it said it helps with the medication getting more on your throat and mouth, and if you have any irritation to it, you should use a spacer, but I don't. Should I just use the inhaler by itself?

    What's the most bang for my buck? Also, I know how to use and inhaler without the spacer, so it's not like the spacer would be helping me use it properly.

  9. if we use mouthpiece spacer, is it eligible for only one breath per puff? Is it same as we used without spacer right (directly from MDI)?

  10. Can you tell when the inhaler is working? I used it twice and it does seem like it did anything< I didn't feel any kind of sensation or air. Does the meter drop with dose?
