How to use Nexthaler
NEXThaler® is a multidose breath-actuated medium-resistance dry powder inhaler (DPI). After activation of the breath-actuated mechanism (BAM), the full dose is released from the dosing cup within 0.35 s and this occurs consistently at a variety of inhalation flows tested (28-60 L/min).
The inhalation device incorporates a full-dose feedback system for the patient user to ensure that the complete dose is delivered and that the inhaler is handled correctly. Firstly, a click is heard on activation of the BAM when the patient inhales through the device and the internal mechanism is activated. Secondly, release of the dose is confirmed through a dose counter linked to the BAM. The dose counter does not decrement after preparation of the dose but only after delivery of the full therapeutic dose. Lastly, the formulation contains lactose as a carrier, which leaves a typical taste upon inhalation of the drug from the device. This triple feedback system allows both physicians and patients to be sure that the full therapeutic dose is taken by patients.
