The Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI) is a device that delivers a specific and pre-metered amount of medication to the lungs, in the form of an aerosol spray that is inhaled by the patient. It consists of a canister of pressurized medication that fits into a plastic actuator sleeve and connects to the mouthpiece. The formulation in an MDI is made up of the drug and a liquefied gas propellant. Cipla MDIs are designed to deliver accurate dosing by employing the right formulation technology and using the most sophisticated metered dose valves, canisters and actuators. Detailed steps of usage and cleaning are shown here.
