ABSTRACT
This section focuses on how to use asthma inhalers, spacers and nebulizers. When using an aerosol inhaler, it is vital to shake the inhaler well. The person must get the in-breath coordinated precisely with pressing the canister down. He must breathe in slowly and deeply, otherwise he will not get much of the drug into his airways. When using spacers, remember to shake the inhaler before spraying into the spacer. Puff the inhaler into the spacer once only. Breathe in within 5 seconds of spraying the inhaler.
