Asthma Tips: How To Use Your Rescue Inhaler 1024 768 Statcare Urgent Medical Care

Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the lungs. Asthma can be deadly if you do not treat severe flare-ups correctly. According to health experts, many people use their rescue inhalers wrong. This means that many people with asthma don’t get the life-saving medications that they need to stop an asthma attack.

An inhaler is usually prescribed for respiratory diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (bronchitis, emphysema). You can get an inhaler refill at Statcare. Using your inhaler correctly delivers the medication to your lungs, where it can work to control your symptoms. Using an inhaler incorrectly means that little or no medicine reaches the lungs.

Asthma Tips

How to use your rescue inhaler

  1. Take off the inhaler cap and make sure the mouthpiece and spray hole are clean.
  2. Shake the inhaler 10 to 15 times.
  3. Without the inhaler, take a deep breath and breathe out all the way.
  4. Hold the inhaler upright with the spray hole about 1-2 inches away from your mouth.
  5. Begin to breathe in slowly.
  6. Press down on the inhaler one time and keep breathing in.
  7. Hold your breath for 5-10 seconds.
  8. Open your mouth and breathe out slowly.
