How to use an inhaler and spacer for asthma

We filmed 6 year-old Eilidh and her mum showing us how she uses her inhaler, spacer and mask to take medicine for her asthma. We also see 8 year-old Matthew, who had never used an inhaler before. He is using a dry powder inhaler and a pressured metered dose inhaler. The respiratory nurse explains step by step how to use the inhalers, spacer and mask.
