Check the dose counter.

Do not use if the
 dose counter says zero.

 

00:00:09;23 - 00:00:13;06

Zero means the inhaler is empty and
 needs to be replaced.

Hold the inhaler upright and
 do not shake it.

 

00:00:17;18 - 00:00:19;21

Pull the cover down until
 you hear a click.

 

00:00:20;12 - 00:00:21;21

This loads a dose. 

 

00:00:22;07 - 00:00:25;03

 up straight.

Put the curved mouthpiece in your
 mouth between your teeth

 

00:00:35;26 - 00:00:37;20

and close your lips tightly
 around it.

 

00:00:38;01 - 00:00:39;23

Do not block the air vents. 

 

00:00:40;29 - 00:00:42;16

Breathe out slowly away from
 the device.

 

00:00:51;26 - 00:00:54;20

Close the cover by sliding the cover
 up and over the

 

00:00:54;22 - 00:00:56;15

mouthpiece as far as
 it will go.

 

00:00:57;14 - 00:00:59;22

Rinse your mouth out with water and
