The Acoustic Features of Inhalation can be Used to Quantify Aerosol Delivery from a Diskus™ Dry Powder Inhaler

by Jansen N Seheult, P O'Connell, Kee Chun Tee, T Bholah, H Al Bannai, I Sulaiman, E MacHale, S D'Arcy, MS Holmes, D Bergin, E Reeves, RB Reilly, G Crispino-O'Connell, C Ehrhardt, A Healy, RW Costello , May, 2014

Some patients are unable to generate the peak inspiratory flow rate (PIFR) necessary to de-agglomerate drug particles from dry powder inhalers (DPIs). In this study we tested the hypothesis that the acoustic parameters of an inhalation are related to the PIFR and hence reflect drug delivery....
