Cleaning Respimat®

*75% of the droplets delivered by RESPIMAT® are in the fine particle fraction.2
No special inhalation effort: hardly any inspiratory effort needed (as for DPIs) and minimal coordination required (as for most MDIs).
RESPIMAT® delivers a metered dose of medication in a mist at the push of a button not requiring the force from the patient’s inhalation.
