Know your Inhaler
Pressair is a breath activated portable inhaler.
The different parts of a Pressair are:
1. Protective Cap
The protective cap is placed over the mouthpiece to avoid contamination due to humidity. The inhaler should be kept covered whenever not in use.
2. Dose Indicator
The dose indicator shows the patient approximately how many doses remain in the inhaler. Number of doses count down in the interval of 10.
3. Green Button
Pressing this button releases the medicine. Taking a dose from the Pressair inhaler requires patients to press and release the green button, and then inhale.
4. Colored Control Window
The colored control window provides confirmation of successful inhalation. The window turns from red to green when the dose is ready, and from green to red when the patient has inhaled full dose of medicine correctly.
Mouthpiece is placed in the patient’s mouth to extract the medicine. You should seal your lips tightly around the mouthpiece to prevent medicine wastage.
