Title (EN) INHALER FOR POWDERED MEDICAMENTS
(FR) INHALATEUR POUR MEDICAMENTS EN POUDRE
Abstract:
(EN) A device for applying a powdered or particulate substance to a mucous membrane in a nostril comprises a tubular body (10) similar to a drinking straw. The tubular body has opposite end parts forming a mouthpiece (11) and a nasal piece (12) to be inserted between the lips and into the nostril, respectively, of a user. The mouthpiece (11) and the nasal piece (12) are interconnected by a bent or a bendable, preferably corrugated part (13). A dose of a powdered or particulate substance arranged within the tubular body (10) is transferred to the nostril when the user blows into the mouthpiece (11). A part of the mouthpiece is preferably deflated or compressed between a pair of fingers (35) of the user. The compressed part (34) is released when the user has started to blow forcefully into the compressed mouthpiece part which is thereby inflated. It has been found that the user will automatically close the connection between the nostrils and the throat by the uvula when blowing.
(FR) Ce dispositif, qui sert à appliquer une substance particulaire ou en poudre sur la membrane muqueuse d'une narine, comprend un corps tubulaire (10) analogue à une paille pour boissons. Ce corps tubulaire comporte des parties terminales opposées formant d'une part un embout buccal (11) et d'autre part un embout nasal (12) à introduire entre les lèvres et dans la narine, respectivement, de l'utilisateur. L'embout buccal (11) et l'embout nasal (12) sont reliés entre eux par une partie de préférence ondulée coudée ou pliable (13). Une dose d'une substance particulaire ou en poudre disposée dans le corps tubulaire (10) est transférée dans la narine, lorsque l'utilisateur souffle dans l'embout buccal (11). De préférence, l'utilisateur amène une partie de l'embout buccal à se dégonfler ou à se comprimer en la serrant entre deux de ses doigts (35). La partie comprimée (34) est relâchée lorsque l'utilisateur commence à souffler dans la partie comprimée de l'embout buccal, laquelle est alors gonflée. On a constaté que l'utilisateur va automatiquement fermer la liaison entre les narines et la gorge par la luette, au moment où il souffle.
