Presented Research

Presented at ATS 2019:

  • Based on these laboratory data, the VHC with tracheostomy adaptor appears to provide a reliable means of delivering SMI aerosols to patients with a tracheostomy tube or tracheal stoma.
  • Further research is required to determine the clinical relevance of these in vitro findings.

This laboratory-based study mimicking adult inhalation of suspension- and solution-formulated pMDI-delivered medications highlighted the potential for even a short delay, following inhaler actuation without a VHC, to reduce markedly the efficiency of aerosol delivery to the carinal region of the airway, potentially available for lung delivery.

The widely differing inspiratory flow profiles in response to training is indicative that use of this particular DPI may not be easy to master for all users after video instruction.

Having a child with asthma can be stressful for parents, especially for financially strapped ones struggling to pay for an arsenal of puffers and pills for their child’s treatment. Because of this, those healthcare professionals who recommend spacer chambers may suggest one of many lower-cost versions that are available on the market today. But focusing only on cost may be putting a child’s health at risk.

Presented at the British Thoracic Society December 2018.

This study highlights that not all chambers perform the same and may deliver different amounts of medication.

Clinicians should be aware that the volume of a VHC has a marked effect on the delivery of medication.

Presented at the British Thoracic Society December 2018.

Clinicians need to be aware that not all VHCs are the same and that large differences in delivery may exist when a facemask is present.

A new ERS Technical Standard was published in 2017, providing guidance on how to perform the Methacholine Challenge Test (MCT), incorporating a change from evaluating the Provocative Concentration to the Provocative Dose (PD20).

Clinicians should be aware that the output from some VHCs can change with VHC orientation, most likely due to the effect of gravity on less responsive mechanical inhalation valves

This laboratory-based study compared the behavior of widely prescribed large and small volume VHCs for the delivery of Pressurized Metered Dose Inhaler (pMDI)-delivered Fluticasone Propionate (FP).
