Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI)


Inhaled Medicine


The metered dose inhaler (MDI) delivers medicine to the bronchial passages as tiny droplets. It is therefore critical that the patients use the best inhalation technique possible. 


This video describes the technique of using a spacer to deliver the cloud of medicine to the lower airways. Shake well, then shoot into the spacer, then inhale slowly, then count to 10, then exhale slowly. Wait 1 minute then start all over again.
