An aerosol chamber or metered dose inhaler (MDI) is a device delivering a medication in a predefined amount to the lungs in a burst of aerosolized medicine via inhalation. They are mostly used for treating asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory diseases. Medicine used in an aerosol chamber is mostly a bronchodilator, corticosteroid or combination of the both.
History of aerosol chamber
Asthma was treated with bulb nebulizers. They are squeezed in order to deliver medication before the invention of aerosol chambers. And they were really unreliable and can be fragile. Also, the medication used in these bulbs were consisted of really big particles, which had an inefficient performance for delivering the medication into the patients lungs. Aerosol chambers were invented in 1955 by Riker Laboratories. Initial design had a canister made of glass.
Structure of aerosol chamber
An aerosol chamber or a metered dose inhaler is formed with three components; a canister, a metering valve and an actuator. Canister contains the medication in aerosol form, metering valve allows the dispensation of a predefined amount of medication and actuator has the mouthpiece function which is put into the mouth of the patient and directs aerosol into the patients lungs. Actuator should include a cap for keeping the mouthpiece hygienic.
Ceren Üretim has invested into a long research and development activity for this product. The product has antistatic mouthpiece for children and adults and also can be easily used and cleaned. It is also designed for ease of usage.
