If your inhaler doesnt work right away, then it requires medical attention. If you black out, dont skip go and call 911 (or in my case stumble into an ER and get asked by a guy in scrubs if he can help you. So I gave him my inhaler and I passed out again woke up to a full team of people and with oxygen and vitals on and in a wheelchair). After vitals finished I was whisked into a room and the respitory team was already there. Must of been out for a few minutes for sure. I was lectured that night and told if I came in 30 minutes later I would of died and they wouldnt have been able to save me. A time after that I was in a full blown attack inhaler didnt work while I was on a bus. The doctors office couldnt understand me, so I handed the phone to a lady next to me that asked if I was ok. Then I pulled out my state id and gave it to her and showed her the inhaler. They pulled up my chart and told her how to get me to the nearest clinic, she did and I passed out right at the reception desk and fell into a wheelchair. I dont know it is with me and passing out in men's arms or in wheelchairs, but I bet one of these days I wont be so lucky.
