  • How is a Ventolin inhaler used?

    Good inhaler technique is an important part of managing your asthma:

    1. Stand or sit upright when using your inhaler.
    2. Remove the mouthpiece cover and check inside and outside to make sure that the
      mouthpiece is clean and free of objects.
    3. Shake the inhaler 4 or 5 times to ensure that the contents of the inhaler are evenly
      mixed.
    4. Hold the inhaler upright with your thumb on the base and your fingers on the top of
      the canister. Your hand should be making a ‘C’ shape.
    5. Breathe out as far as is comfortable. Do not breathe in again yet.
      Place the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth. Close your lips around it but
      do not bite.
    6. Start to breathe in through your mouth. Just after starting to breathe in, press down
      on the top of the canister to release a puff of medicine. Do this while still breathing in
      steadily and deeply.
    7. Hold your breath, take the inhaler from your mouth and your finger from the top of the
      inhaler. Continue holding your breath for a few seconds, or as long as is comfortable.

    Repeat as directed by your doctor. Always replace the mouthpiece cover straight away to keep dust out.
