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.

Institutional care has been strongly promoted in China to meet seniors' long-term care needs. Empty-nest elderly, in comparison with their counterparts, have less social support and fewer caring netwo...
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.
