How to Use an AeroChamber

  1. Remove the caps from the mouthpiece on the inhaler and on the AeroChamber.
  2. Put the inhaler mouthpiece into the wider rubber-sealed end of the AeroChamber
  3. Shake the inhaler and AeroChamber, this mixes the medication properly.
  4. Breathe out, away from your AeorChamber
  5. Put the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth and close your lips around it.
  6. Press the inhaler once.  The medication will be delivered into the AeroChamber.
  7. Breathe in slowly and deeply over 3-5 seconds.  If you breathe in too fast, the AeroChamber may whistle.
  8. Hold your breath for up to ten seconds.  This allows the medication time to deposit in the airways.
  9. Resume normal breathing.  If you need a second puff, wait 30-60 seconds, shake your inhaler again, and repeat steps 4-8.
