How to use a metered dose inhaler without a separator
Shake the inhaler and remove the cap: Step 1
Shake the inhaler as indicated in the instructions, and remove the cap. Carefully read the instructions to the inhaler and check whether it should be filled with his medication or not before use. If necessary, do so and follow the instructions.
Hold the inhaler vertically: Step 2
Take the inhaler by the bottom and keep it upright.
Tilt your head and exhale: Step 3
Slightly tilt your head and exhale slowly, but exhale.
Place the inhaler: Step 4
There are two ways to arrange the inhaler when it is used without a separator. You can keep the inhaler 2.5-5 cm in front of your open mouth, without touching it with your lips. For some people, this method presents some difficulties. Or you can insert the inhaler into your mouth. This is the least effective way to use the inhaler.
Start inhaling and click on the inhaler: Step 5
Start making a slow, steady and deep breath; click on the inhaler once (first, start inhaling, then press) and continue to inhale slowly.
Hold your breath: Step 6
Hold your breath for 10 seconds. Thus, the medicine spreads to the lungs as much as possible.
If you want to repeat the procedure, wait 30-60 seconds first.
