Specific minimum inspiratory flows are needed in order to trigger dry powder inhalers. Scientific studies have shown that especially older people and infants have difficulty reaching these minimum thresholds1,2.
But with a nebuliser, patients can inhale even with very low inspiratory flows. In fact, slow inspiration is actually desirable, because it deposits less medication in the throat. This means that more active agent reaches the lungs.
It works best in conjunction with the PIF Control System – a breath sensory feedback system developed by PARI specially for this purpose.
