The rational choice of an inhalation device is a cornerstone in the effective management of asthma and COPD. In this publication, we describe the development of a new system, the Inhalation Manager, which, for the first time, offers the possibility to assess the entire inhalation maneuver of patients using original devices under everyday conditions. So far the Inhalation Manager allows the measurement of inspiratory maneuvers of patients through placebo inhalation devices of the most common… Expand

TLDR
Among the currently available dry powder inhalers the Novolizer device fulfils several characteristics of an ideal inhaler for the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Expand
What plays a role in the choice of inhaler device for asthma therapy?
ABSTRACT Inhalation is the preferred route of delivery for anti-asthma drugs. However, in reality inhalers are often prescribed on an empirical basis rather than on evidence-based awareness. AsthmaExpand
Importance of inhaler devices in the management of airway disease.
TLDR
Improvements in using inhalation devices more efficiently, in inhaler design for supporting patient compliance, and advances in inhalers technology to assure drug delivery to the lungs, have the potential to improve asthma and COPD management and control. Expand
PATIENT-CENTRED PERFORMANCE TESTING OF A DRY POWDER SPACER: A PILOT STUDY USING INHALATION PROFILES FROM HEALTHY VOLUNTEERS TO ASSESS DRUG DELIVERY PERFORMANCE
TLDR
The potential use of spirometer technology to collect inhalation profiles for patientcentred device testing was showed, and the steady flow was an inadequate metric to assess inter-subject variability in fine particle delivery from a dry powder inhaler. Expand
Inhalation device requirements for patients' inhalation maneuvers.
TLDR
The presented algorithm can be used to develop a new computer based measurement system which could help to test and train patients' individual inhalation maneuvers with their inhalation devices and shows which goals should be achieved in terms of inhalation flows. Expand

TLDR
It is found that, beside the peak inspiratory flow (PIF), other factors such as flow acceleration and inhalation volume also have significant effects on aerosol generation with respect to mass output and particle size distribution. Expand
Patient Inspiratory Maneuver Performance; Peak Lungpower, Acceleration and Volume
TLDR
Lungpower applied to the Kamin-Haidl inhalation criteria concept could be an applicable method for reviewing patient performance for different DPIs despite DPIs' characteristic differences in airflow resistance. Expand
Appropriate use of a dry powder inhaler based on inhalation flow pattern
TLDR
Visualization of the inhalation flow pattern facilitates the learning of proper inhalation technique through a DPI and whether self-training with visual feedback is effective. Expand
The need to improve inhalation technique in Europe: a report from the Aerosol Drug Management Improvement Team.
TLDR
Data indicate that there is a clear need for specific training of patients in correct inhalation technique for the various devices currently available, and this should be repeated frequently to maintain correct inhalance technique. Expand
The ADMIT series - issues in inhalation therapy. 6) Training tools for inhalation devices.
TLDR
The devices currently available for training patients in the correct use of both pressurised metered-dose inhalers (pMDIs) and dry powder inhaler devices (DPIs) are reviewed. Expand

TLDR
Inhalation devices, including spacers, dry-powder inhalers, breath-actuated MDIs and, more recently, piezo-electric devices, have been shown to increase lung deposition of drugs in poor coordinators but they all have limitations, which may affect their clinical efficacy. Expand

TLDR
The Marple-Miller Cascade Impactor, a new multistage inertial impactor that operates at two flow rates (30 and 60 liters/min) with comparable particle size cut-offs, provides a means to study the effect of inhalation flow rate on the particle size distributions of inhalations products. Expand
The DiskusTM: A New Multi-Dose Powder Device – Efficacy and Comparison with TurbuhalerTM
TLDR
The pharmaceutical assessment of the Diskus has shown that the delivered dose of salmeterol and fluticasone propionate remains at approximately 90% of the labelled claim at a range of flow rates, unlike the reservoir powder inhaler, in which the fine particle mass is more dependent on flow rate.

Inappropriate inhaler use: assessment of use and patient preference of seven inhalation devices. EDICI.
TLDR
Assessment of patients' use of different inhaler devices and to ascertain whether patient preference is indicative of ease of use and whether current inhaler use has any influence on either technique or preference found the pMDI to be the most commonly prescribed device. Expand

TLDR
It is important to select an appropriate delivery device and to take account of a patient's preference and lifestyle, as incorrect inhaler use may lead to treatment failure. Expand
Inhaled corticosteroids for asthma therapy: patient compliance, devices, and inhalation technique.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that multiple factors may come between a prescription of an inhaled corticosteroid and the arrival of that medicine at its target organ, the lung. Expand
In vitro assessment of drug delivery through an endotracheal tube using a dry powder inhaler delivery system.
TLDR
This in vitro study indicates that drugs from dry powder inhalers (in this case the Turbohaler) can be satisfactorily delivered through endotracheal tubes and that clinical evaluation of this technique is now indicated. Expand

TLDR
A new generation of aerosol delivery devices, incorporating the latest advances in aerosol technology, is likely to fulfill many of the goals, and be cost effective, simple to operate, minimize oropharyngeal deposition and systemic side effects, and match the patient's requirements. Expand
