Steroid inhaler asthma pregnancy

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.

  • Shake the inhaler and prime it (if needed), then insert into the back of the chamber. Have the child sit on an adult's lap, make sure there are no small objects inside the chamber , and gently place the mask over the child’s mouth and nose (the child will be able to breath normally).
  • Pump the inhaler once and hold the mask in place as the child breaths in 6 times.
  • If more puffs of medicine have been prescribed, repeat these steps.
  • The child has gotten the medicine if his/her chest moved in and out for 6 breaths or a hand, placed the child's belly, moved up and down 6 times.
Hand wash the chamber with face mask once a week with warm water and dishwashing soap. Rinse gently with warm water and let air dry (do not use a towel). Replace if chamber gets cracked or broken.
