Evaluation of a breath actuated pressurized aerosol

Clin Allergy. 1976 Jan;6(1):1-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2222.1976.tb01406.x.


Preliminary investigation suggests that some asthmatic patients find it difficult to synchronize the release of a metered dose from a pressurized aerosol with the correct phase of inspiration. An automatic device has been developed to overcome this problem. Information is presented outlining the physical characteristics of the unit and the methods used to establish its performance in patients. It is suggested that the device may have a place in the management of asthma.
