Aptar Pharma’s Breath Actuated Inhaler (BAI), used in conjunction with a pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI), reduces patient variability and patient coordination errors. By doing so, BAI helps improve compliance and adherence in patients with asthma and COPD.

Improving Patient Compliance and Adherence for the Treatment of Asthma and COPD

A breath-actuated pMDI to enhance patient compliance

The BAI is very easy to use and is suitable for all patient types including children and the elderly. This can be important for patients with low inspiration rates. Each dose is delivered by simply breathing in at the mouthpiece, which ensures dose consistency.

Minimized coordination errors

BAIs help overcome poor patient coordination techniques and the need for deep inspiration rates (flow rates), thus minimizing patient coordination errors.

We offer complete solutions

We provide solutions from device and formulation development through clinical trial phases, analytical testing, regulatory filings and market launches. We add value at every stage of the drug-development process, accelerating and reducing the risk of programs along the way.
