Help Patients Troubleshoot Clogged or Empty Inhalers
Social media posts about clogged salbutamol metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) will put focus on helping patients take care of their inhalers.

Check if it's clogged. Look for white residue around the spray nozzle with MDIs...this is a clue the mouthpiece may be blocked.
