  • Customization

    Customization Helps Patients

    Some patients find it difficult to coordinate the actions of breathing in and pressing down at the same time. The 3M™ Autohaler™ Breath Actuated Device triggers actuation when breathing in, helping ensure patients receive their full dose of medication.
