How Do I Use My Inhaler / Spacer Correctly?

1 - Remove the cap of the inhaler and spacer

2 - Shake the inhaler up and down

3 - Attach the inhaler to the back of the spacer

4 - Breathe out fully

5 - When breathing out fully, breathe out away from the spacer

6 - Put the spacer mouthpiece or the MDI mouthpiece (if not using the spacer) into the mouth and close your lips around the mouthpiece

7 - Activate the inhaler by pressing down on the canister 1 time

8 - Breathe in slowly, filling the lungs with medicine; no whistle should be heard
