  • YouTube as a Guide for Respimat® Soft Mist™ Inhaler Technique. [Journal Article]
  • JPJ Pharm Pract 2019 Jun 23; :897190019853988
  • Eudaley ST, Dabbs WS, Chamberlin SM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Proper technique is crucial for patients to achieve optimal results from inhaled medications. While many videos are available through YouTube for demonstration of Respimat Soft Mist inhaler technique, some omitted key steps. Thorough and repetitive patient education should be provided, and augmented with reputable online sources.
  • COPD: Analysing factors associated with a successful treatment. [Journal Article]
  • PPulmonology 2019 Jun 17
  • Duarte-de-Araújo A, Teixeira P, … Correia-de-Sousa J
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the present study we failed to prove a positive association between non-adherence to medication, inhalers mishandling or prescribers' non-adherence to GOLD strategy with symptoms, exacerbations and airflow limitation. Conversely, more symptomatic and more obstructed patients were more adherent to medication, previous ECOPD seems to improve prescribers' adherence to treatment guidelines, and symptoms, ECOPD and FEV1% were not significantly associated with inhaler technique.
  • Inhaler Spray Investigation Using High-Speed Phase-Contrast X-Ray and Schlieren Imaging. [Journal Article]
  • PRPharm Res 2019 Jun 18; 36(8):120
  • McKiernan AP
  • CONCLUSIONS: As the foamy liquid-vapour mixture is forced out of the sump and into the orifice the liquid walls of the bubbles break into fragments which are forced out of the sump and tend to form a liquid-gas flow in the orifice channel. The period of high density plume observed by the schlieren technique corresponds to flash-boiling-driven liquid exiting the orifice channel.
  • COPD: misuse of inhaler devices in clinical practice. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis 2019; 14:1209-1217
  • Duarte-de-Araújo A, Teixeira P, … Correia-de-Sousa J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Inhalers mishandling remains disappointingly common. A good inhalation technique depends on the type of ID, and failure of inhalation manoeuver was the main cause of ID misuse. It was not associated to multiple inhalers' use nor to patient's preference, but to the patient's beliefs about the necessity to use them. Elderly patients, women and those with lower education level or lower socioeconomic status demonstrate a worse inhalation technique.
