Asthma Basics: Inhaler Devices
There are many types of devices used to deliver your quick reliever or controller medications to your lungs. It is critical that you (or your asthmatic child) know how to use these devices the right way. If these devices are not used the right way, the medication delivery to your lungs will be inappropriate. This will increase the chances your asthma symptoms will not be controlled to the best level possible, your asthma symptoms worsen, or it takes longer to get relief from your quick reliever medication!
