Re: Is it Asthma?
May 16, 2009
On the issue of technique: I've been instructed to close lips tightly around the mouthpiece. My searches on the web have indicated that both techniques may be ok, but to follow manufacturers or care providers instructions. Proventil's online literature states that one should close lips tightly around the mouthpiece.

I wonder if closed lips works better with HFA inhalers, because of the softer, gentler mist? I've never been able to successful use a CFC inhaler without severe coughing fits resulting--perhaps because I was using a closed lips technique?

I had always assumed that the reason one didn't put their lips on the inhaler was for hygeinic reasons. BUt if your the only one using it it probably doesnt matter - what matters is the end result - when you use the inhaer by any technique is it easier to breath! IF so you must be doing it right.:jester:
