Proper Inhaler Technique Revisited

Now this is the proper (although less funny) technique...

These are the key points that I stress to my patients:
  1. Press inhaler after start of inhalation
  2. Do a slow inhalation (NOT the quick gasp that you see people do on TV)
  3. Hold breath for ten second (or as long as comfortable)
  4. Repeat in 1 minute if needed
