"One Minute Asthma" by Thomas F. Plaut, M.D. on Ganxy

One Minute Asthma
Asthma Inhalers

One Minute Asthma provides all the information you need about asthma inhalers to use them effectively. There are several types of asthma inhalers. Each asthma inhaler is designed to deliver medicine into the airway where it words. The most common asthma inhalers are aerosol inhalers. These asthma inhalers produce a mist of medicine that is released under pressure. This asthma inhaler requires the patient to hold his breath for ten seconds to allow the medicine to settle and touch the lining of the airway. A second kind of asthma inhaler is activated by the patient's breath. This type of asthma inhaler is easier to use than other aerosol asthma inhalers according to One Minute Asthma. The dry powdered inhaler is breathed in quickly, is effective on impact and doe not require you to hold your breath. You must prime your aerosol asthma inhaler before you first use it or is you have not used it for more than a week. If you use more than one asthma inhaler at a time. Be sure to use the fastacting one first. Breathe the air out of your lungs and put your lips firmly around the mouthpiece of the aerosol asthma inhaler. Start to breathe in and then press the asthma inhaler can down. Breathe the medicine from the asthma inhaler for three to five seconds to fill your lungs completely. Hold your breath for five to ten seconds to allow the mist from the asthma inhaler to settle and touch the lining of your airway. Wait 10 seconds before taking the next puff from the asthma inhaler.
