  1. I have gone through a few videos of Handihaler demonstration but this one is really better than the rest (which I watched).

  2. Very interesting series you have put together .. how is this funded? .. any data on whether it helps improve the technique?

  3. Remove the capsule from the blister pack just before you take your dose. Do not open the capsule. It does not matter which end of the capsule is placed in the chamber.
