MDI with spacer use (amount of time in between puffs)

    When using inhaled medication via MDI with spacer in a hospital setting (emergency room or inpatient) with multiple puffs (greater than 4 puffs), how long is it recommended to wait in between puffs?  I know patient education handouts recommend waiting 1 minute in between puffs.  However, when multiple puffs are prescribed this would require increased time to deliver the medication in this format. 

    Thank you.
