Nicotrol inhaler

Nicotrol inhaler

A nicotine replacement device used for smoking cessation, consisting of a mouthpiece and a cartridge containing a nicotine-imbibed plug. Each puff from the inhaler contains ± 10 times less nicotine than a puff of a cigarette. The inhaler also helps control a smoker’s physcological cravings, as it mimics the “actions” of smoking and thereby addresses a major behavioural component thereof.
