  1. Remove the protective cap from the inhaler.
  2. Shake the inhaler and insert into the volumatic spacer device.
  3. Place the mouthpiece in the mouth.
  4. Start breathing in and out slowly and gently. (As the valve opens and closes this will make a “clicking” sound)
  5. Once the breathing pattern is well established, depress the inhaler canister once, leave the device in the same position and continue to breathe (tidal breathing) in and out 5-6 more times.
  6. Remove the device from the mouth.
  7. For a second dose wait 30 seconds before repeating steps 2-6.
