How To Use Treatment And Monitoring Devices
How To Use A Nebulizer
As an alternative to metered-dose inhalers, asthma medications can be administered via devices called nebulizers, which turn the medication into a fine mist.
How To Use A Dry Powder Inhaler
Dry powder inhalers are driven by your inhalation, not a propellant as in aerosol inhalers. Some people find an inhaler of this type simpler to use than one with an aerosol delivery system.
How To Use An Inhaler
Most inhaled asthma medications come in containers called metered-dose inhalers, or MDIs. However, they can be a little tricky, at first.
How To Use A Spacer
To make sure that inhaled asthma medication reaches your airways -- not just the back of your throat -- your doctor may recommend attaching a spacer, a simple device that makes it easier to use a metered-dose inhaler.
