The ability to take in a complete breath is quite essential for Asthma and COPD patients. Few things are as scary as not being able to get enough air in your lungs. Learning to manage your Asthma begins with understanding how to inhale your medicine effectively to relieve your symptoms and improve quality of life.
The Metered Dose Inhalers require hand and breath coordination and the patients even need to learn the Slow and Deep breathing techniques for effective dose delivery.
How to Inhale
The aim of How to Inhale app is to teach you how to reduce or eliminate your symptoms of respiratory diseases like Asthma, COPD and Allergies by teaching you the correct Slow and Deep inhaling technique required for your MDI inhaler.
