Direction For Use: Once a nebule has been detached from the plastic bar, it is open and should be used immediately.
Prepare the nebulizer for filling.
Separate one Ventolin nebule and detach by twisting it firmly.
The nebule is now open. Take care not to spill the contents.
Squeeze the contents of the nebule into the reservoir of the nebulizer. Do not dilute the contents unless instructed to do so by the doctor.
Assemble the nebulizer and use it as directed.
After use, discard any remaining solution and clean the nebulizer in the usual way. If the dilution is necessary, this should be carried out only as prescribed by the doctor. The usual method of dilution is to empty the Ventolin nebule into the nebulizer reservoir, as previously mentioned, and then to add the prescribed amount of sterile normal saline. The reservoir should then be gently shaken to mix the contents.
Dilution: VENTOLIN Nebules may be diluted with sterile normal saline. Any unused solution in the chamber of the nebuliser must be discarded.
