How to use device2,3

For asthma patients, Symbicort® is delivered using the Symbicort® Turbohaler®. The Turbohaler® is driven by inspiratory flow. When the patient inhales through the mouthpiece, Symbicort® will be carried along with the inspired air into the airways.

The dose indicator allows your patients to know how many doses (inhalations) are left in their Symbicort® Turbohaler®.
