Seretide combination inhaler (contains the steroid fluticasone and longacting beta agonist salmeterol) to be given through a spacer device. The darker the inhaler, the higher the dose. Left hand has 50 mcg, middle one 125 mcg and right hand 250 mcg of fluticasone per puff, whilst they all contain the same 25 mcg dose of salmeterol.
Seretide combination inhaler (contains the steroid fluticasone and long acting beta agonist salmeterol) can also be given as a dry powder in a device called an accuhaler. It comes with different fluticasone strengths - 100, 250 and 500 mcg per puff, always with salmeterol at the same dose of 50 mcg per puff, but I only use the lowest dose as a dry powder.
Symbicort combination inhaler (contains the steroid budesonide and long acting beta agonist formoterol) can only be given as a dry powder in a device called a turbohaler. It comes in different combinations – 100/6, 200/6, and 400/12; the budesonide dose is 100 or 200, the formoterol dose 6 or 12 per puff. I only use the lower dose as a dry powder.
For children who are not able to use a mouthpiece (under age 4 – depends on child), a facemask can be used with the MDI.
