Spacer devices minimize the drug deposition in the oropharyngeal region as they retain between 30% and 50% of the nominal drug dose. Additionally, they should increase the fine particle fraction of the emitted aerosol. A new effort to increase the lung deposition was the design of a new actuator, the BronchoAir inhaler, (BronchoAir Medizintechnik GmbH, Munich, Germany). This study was carried out to evaluate the usefulness of this new actuator device by comparing its fine particle fraction with… Expand
Metered dose inhalers (MDIs)
TLDR
Metered dose inhalers have the disadvantage that the currently used hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) propellants contribute to the greenhouse effect and re-formulation of the drug formulations on short notice with more environment-friendly propellants may be necessary. Expand
Principles of metered-dose inhaler design.
TLDR
The pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI) was introduced to deliver asthma medications in a convenient and reliable multi-dose presentation to allow inhalation therapy via pMDI to extend well into the 21st century for a variety of treatment indications. Expand
Inhalers: Back to the Future
TLDR
Important new drug products for the treatment of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cyst ic fibrosis, diabetes, and a range of neurological disorders have been developed. Expand
Development of a Dry Powder Inhaler, the Ultrahaler®, Containing Triamcinolone Acetonide Using In Vitro-In Vivo Relationships
TLDR
In vitro and in vivo data were in agreement and good control over the target-dose delivery and dose proportionality could be achieved in the early stages of the development of the Ultrahaler®. Expand

TLDR
The different lung deliveries from the same inhaler for the two formulations above also confirm that the overall performance of an inhaler is optimizable via powder formulations. Expand
Investigation of Dry Powder Inhaler (DPI) Resistance and Aerosol Dispersion Timing on Emitted Aerosol Aerodynamic Particle Sizing by Multistage Cascade Impactor when Sampled Volume Is Reduced from Compendial Value of 4 L
TLDR
The hypothesis that DPI flow resistance may be a factor in determining outcomes is examined, examining outcomes with two CIs when the air sample volume was ≤4 L with moderate-resistance DPIs and with inhalers representing low and high flow resistance extremes. Expand
A Multi-laboratory in Vitro Study to Compare Data from Abbreviated and Pharmacopeial Impactor Measurements for Orally Inhaled Products: a Report of the European Aerosol Group (EPAG)
TLDR
The findings from this investigation support the equivalence of AIM and PIM for determination of FPD across a wide range of OIP platforms and measurement techniques. Expand
Cascade impactors for the size characterization of aerosols from medical inhalers: their uses and limitations.

  • 2003
TLDR
An overview of the operating principles of impactors is provided and the various configurations and adaptations that have been adopted to characterize the various classes of inhaler are highlighted, to examine the limitations of the cascade impaction method. Expand
Evaluation of Nasal Inlet Ports Having Simplified Geometry for the Pharmacopeial Assessment of Mass Fraction of Dose Likely to Penetrate Beyond the Nasopharynx: a Preliminary Investigation
TLDR
It is concluded that the metal inlet has the potential to be adopted as a suitable induction port in the assessment of nasal product quality, where currently no standardized inlet exists. Expand
Modeling Aerosol Drug Delivery
TLDR
Delivery of a therapeutic agent by inhalation has seen increasing applications for many respiratory diseases, including asthma, COPD, and allergies because of the large surface area in the pulmonary region and rapid absorption of the delivered drug from the alveolar region to the blood. Expand

TLDR
The fine particle dose, a measure of the effective deposition of inhaled drug in the airways, has been shown to be greater with a pMDI and a spacer device in comparison with apMDI alone and is dependent on the choice of impactor inlet. Expand
An in vitro evaluation of various spacer devices for metered-dose inhalers using the Twin Impinger
Abstract Spacer devices are a useful tool in inhalation therapy with metered-dose inhalers (MDI). Various spacers with different shapes and sizes are currently on the market. This study intends toExpand
Spacer devices used with metered-dose inhalers. Breakthrough or gimmick?
TLDR
In patients whose condition is well controlled with the usual inhaled doses of corticosteroids with no local side effects, spacer devices show promise, but more studies are needed. Expand
In vitro evaluation of dry powder inhalers I: drug deposition of commonly used devices
Abstract Inhalation of aerosolized drugs has become the therapy of choice for the treatment of lung diseases. The most commonly used device, the pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI), however,Expand
Pressurised aerosol deposition in the human lung with and without an "open" spacer device.
TLDR
The open spacer should teach patients good coordination and delivers more aerosol to the lungs than a correctly used metered dose inhaler, which has an open section in its upper surface. Expand
Do large volume spacer devices reduce the systemic effects of high dose inhaled corticosteroids?
TLDR
The results from this uncontrolled study suggest that asthmatic patients taking high dose beclomethasone dipropionate may minimise adverse effects by using a large volume spacer device. Expand

TLDR
One hundred and thirty-five patients already being treated with drugs by inhalation were found to have a poor inhaler technique, even though most had received instruction on how to use a pressurized aerosol and were considered to be able to use one of these devices correctly. Expand
