Dry powder inhaler (DPI) is a device that delivers medication to the lungs in the form of a dry powder. DPIs are commonly used to treat respiratory diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and COPD although DPIs have also been used in the treatment of diabetes mellitus. DPIs are an alternative to the aerosol based inhalers commonly called metered-dose inhaler (or MDI). The DPI comes under the following aspects: Formulation Aspects for Various Routes of Drug Administration, Preformulation, Delivery systems.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope and Importance:
Their rapid Development arises from the ability to overcome the drawbacks of the currently employed therapeutic drugs, which exhibit poor biopharmaceutical and pharmacokinetic properties. Nanoparticle drug carriers provide alternative formulation strategies for those molecules thus enhancing the scope for commercialization. They are potential for prolonged drug release. The conference too offers growth to expand reserves of knowledge and explore newer realms.
The DPIs may require some procedure to allow a measured dose of powder to be ready for the patient to take. The medication is commonly held either in a capsule for manual loading or a proprietary from inside the inhaler. Once loaded or actuated, the operator puts the mouthpiece of the inhaler into their mouth and takes a sharp, deep inhalation (ensuring that the medication reaches the lower parts of the lungs), holding their breath for 5-10 seconds. There are a variety of such devices. The dose that can be delivered is typically less than a few tens of milligrams in a single breath since larger powder doses may lead to provocation of cough. Dry powder inhalers (DPIs) are inhalers that deliver medication in a dry powder form. DPI medication is delivered by many different designs for inhalation. People who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or other lung conditions often take their medications using devices called a metered dose inhaler (MDI) or a dry powder inhaler (DPI). A metered dose inhaler is a handheld device that delivers a specific amount of medication in aerosol form, rather than as a pill or capsule. The MDI consists of a pressurized canister inside a plastic case, with a mouthpiece attached. With an MDI, you press on the device while inhaling the COPD medication directly into your lungs. Its portability makes it easy to use anywhere, anytime. MDIs use a chemical propellant to push medication out of the inhaler. Some medications can be taken in the form of a dry powder, using a dry powder inhaler, which is also a handheld device.
A DPI delivers medication to the lungs as you inhale through it. It doesn't contain propellants or other ingredients -- just your medication. Several medicines for chronic lung diseases like asthma or COPD are now delivered in a dry powder inhaler. Since the medicines are dry powder, they must be delivered in a special inhaler. When you inhale fast enough the medicine is released.
The basic technique for using a dry powdered medication is:
The global market for pulmonary drug delivery technologies reached $32.4 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow to $43.9 billion in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2%.
