  • It senses if you hold your inhaler correctly.
  • It senses how long and forcefully you inhale.

What do I do if I get a new inhaler?

When you get a new inhaler or refill a prescription, attach your BreatheSuite MDI device to the new inhaler and continue using it as normal. If your prescription changes and you’re required to add a different inhaler, you can do so in the “Prescriptions” tab on the BreatheSuite mobile app.

What's the difference between a Controller and Rescue Inhaler?

Controller Inhaler:

These medications are known as preventer or long-acting and should be used on a regular basis to help control and cure inflammation of airways.

Rescue inhaler:
