Respimat® is an inhaler delivering a soft mist. Respimat® works through the energy released from a tensioned spring. This is why you need to turn the clear base until you hear a click to prepare the dose. For more details, please refer to the Respimat® Patient Information Leaflet which can be found inside your Respimat® packaging or accessed via the Home page on this website.
