Devices and Techniques

How do you use your asthma devices?

Using your asthma inhalers (or devices) the right way helps to ensure you are getting the best possible treatment for your asthma.

Most medicine for asthma is taken by breathing it in through your mouth from an inhaler. This gets the medicine straight into your lungs where it is needed. There are many things that can block or alter the path of your asthma medicine dose as it travels from your mouth to your lungs. 

Many people don’t know that they are using their inhalers incorrectly, which means the full dose of medicine may not be reaching their lungs. There are lots of different types of inhalers, so it’s important that you know how to use yours properly. 

Our videos and tips show you the best way to use your asthma inhalers to make sure you are getting the right dose of your medicine.
