How to use a pressair device. 

 

00:00:05;05 - 00:00:07;22

Check the counter to see if
 the medicine is available.

 

00:00:08;06 - 00:00:10;18

Do not use if the counter
 says zero.

 

00:00:10;30 - 00:00:14;10

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

 

00:00:15;13 - 00:00:18;06

Remove the cap by squeezing the sides
 of the cap.

 

00:00:19;09 - 00:00:21;28

Hold the device level with
 the button facing up.

 

00:00:22;19 - 00:00:25;30

Press the button on the top of the
 device to load the dose.

 

00:00:27;02 - 00:00:30;02

The front window should turn from
 red to green and you

 

00:00:30;04 - 00:00:30;29

should hear a click. 

 

00:00:31;13 - 00:00:33;01

Do not hold the button down. 

 

00:00:34;05 - 00:00:37;02

Prepare your body by sitting or standing
 up straight.

 

00:00:37;18 - 00:00:40;12

Breathe out all the way
 away from the mouthpiece.

 

00:00:40;21 - 00:00:43;23

Keep the device level so you don't
 lose any medication.

 

00:00:44;23 - 00:00:46;06

Tilt your head back slightly. 

 

00:00:46;12 - 00:00:49;05

Put the mouthpiece into your mouth
 between your teeth.

 

00:00:49;28 - 00:00:52;11

Close your lips tightly around
 the mouthpiece.

 

00:00:53;20 - 00:00:56;29

Breath in quickly and as deeply as
 you can through your mouth.

 

00:00:57;15 - 00:01:00;18

The green window will turn red and
 you will hear a click when

 

00:01:00;20 - 00:01:01;21

the dose is complete. 

 

00:01:02;18 - 00:01:05;08

Take the device out of your mouth
 and hold your breath for

 

00:01:05;10 - 00:01:06;11

up to 10 seconds. 

 

00:01:07;10 - 00:01:09;05

Breathe out away from
 the device.

 

00:01:09;24 - 00:01:13;02

If the window is still green, the
 dose is not complete.

 

00:01:13;20 - 00:01:16;27

Repeat steps until the click and
 red window appears.

 

00:01:17;26 - 00:01:21;09

Close device cover and store in a
 cool dry place.

 

00:01:21;25 - 00:01:24;24

If you have trouble using the inhaler
 correctly, ask your

 

00:01:24;26 - 00:01:26;17

pharmacist or doctor for help.
