Dry Powders Inhalers in Asthma- Is it as good as inhalers

Asthma Allergy Pulmonology Centre Thrissur -why we use DPI

Even though inhalers through spacer is the gold standard for Asthma drug delivery safety and efficiency occasionally we do use DPI

Advantages of DPI

  1. Patients already are using it and do not want to change it.
  2. Per piece cost is less; even though long term total cost is higher than MDI
  3. Many patients have fear of inhlaer as spray; bur DPI being a tablet they somehow are more comfortable with DPI
