Brief Answer: As many as you can Detailed Answer: Hi Do you have a device where you put Albuterol (medicine) and breath to clear the wheeze. or Are you talking about blowing the colorful balls in the expirator as breathing treatment? If it is medicated breathing device where you have to breath in the medicine you can do it once every 4 hours. This immediately relieves the symptoms of SOB, wheeze. This is good and you can use it whenever you feel the need. Hope this answers.

yes, it is the inhaling medication. If I am having trouble at night breathing while reclining. I get coughing due to drowning feeling. Can I do the machine every couple of hours? Is there too much?
