Spacer technique

Hi, hoping for help!

My nurse has told me to take four breaths in and out through my spacer for each puff of inhaler. This generally isn't a problem with my preventer but sometimes when I need my reliever I just don't seem to have enough puff to get the out breath back into the inhaler. Am I doing something wrong? Or is there an alternative technique I can use?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

so long as the breaths in are throught the spacer it is ok.



Cool, thanks. Probably hasn't been helping me worrying about whether I was doing it right!
