Help Patients Troubleshoot Clogged or Empty Inhalers
Social media posts about clogged albuterol metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) will put focus on helping patients take care of their inhalers.
When patients report their inhaler isn't working, continue to assess inhaler technique first...then troubleshoot common issues.
Check if it's clogged. Tell patients to look for white residue around the spray nozzle with MDIs.
