The Breezhaler® is similar to the Handihaler®. It is another form of dry powder inhaler that you have to insert a capsule into the chamber before use and pierce it by pressing the buttons on the base of the device. The Breezhaler® is activated by breathing in through the mouthpiece. When activated, the capsule (containing the medicine) that has been pierced inside the Breezhaler® rattles and the medicine is released.
How to use the Breezhaler®
- Pull off the cover/cap.
- Open the inhaler by holding the base firmly and tilt the mouthpiece.
- Remove one capsule from blister pack with dry hands (always keep capsules in blister pack until immediate use), and insert into base of the inhaler.
