A HandiHaler consists of a plastic device to inhale medication. A capsule of powdered medication is placed in the device. The HandiHaler is breath activated. This means when you inhale, the HandiHaler automatically releases the medication. When inhaled correctly, the medication has a better chance to reach the small airways. This increases the medication's effectiveness. The portable size, efficiency and convenience make the HandiHaler a desirable method for inhalation treatment.
