make sure you seal your lips around it tight! >> broncho: now press the inhaler to puffonce and breath in slowly and deeply for 3 to 5 seconds. >> all: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5! >> coltron: then hold your breath for 10 seconds,or as long as you can! >> all: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 >> iggy: now take the spacer from your mouthand blow out slowly. if you have trouble taking that one big deepbreath, you can take 3 or 4 slow deep breaths instead.
