Inspiratory Flow Parameters and Handling of Easyhaler and Turbuhaler Inhalers

2014-07-23 21:12:39 | BioPortfolio


The aim of the study is to measure the inspiratory flow that the different patient groups (asthmatic children, adults and elderly, as well as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients) generate through empty Easyhaler (two versions) and Turbuhaler inhalers. In addition, the handling and acceptability of the inhalers will be compared in asthmatic children.

Cost-utility analysis of an intervention designed to reduce the critical handling error of insufficient inspiratory effort.

Up to 70-80% of patients use inhalers incorrectly. Dry-powder inhalers (DPIs) require forceful inhalation for optimal delivery, and approximately 40% of Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA)-defined St...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition when the SELLA TURCICA is not filled with pituitary tissue. The pituitary gland is either compressed, atrophied, or removed. There are two types: (1) primary empty sella is due a defect in the sella diaphragm leading to arachnoid herniation into the sellar space; (2) secondary empty sella is associated with the removal or treatment of PITUITARY NEOPLASMS.

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

A device that delivers medication to the lungs in the form of a dry powder.

Inability to empty the URINARY BLADDER with voiding (URINATION).

A medical device used to ensure the proper amount of medication is delivered for inhalation. Usually, it is a small aerosol canister placed in a plastic holder. When the canister is pressed, a calibrated amount of drug is released.
