Title: INHALATION METHOD WITH CONTROLLED CYCLIC ACTIVATION
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for carrying out an inhalation, and to a nebuliser for carrying out said method, comprising the following steps: filling a reservoir (11) with liquid medication, or connecting a medication container to a connection piece provided to that effect, if necessary connecting a nebuliser unit (1) to a control unit and/or placing a mouthpiece (2) upon same, at least intermittently activating the nebuliser unit (1) wherein, during activation, the liquid medication is atomised into a fine-droplet aerosol that is dispensed into an aerosol chamber (120) formed by the nebuliser unit and mouthpiece (2), carrying out the inhalation whereby a user encloses said mouthpiece with their lips and draws air from outside into the aerosol chamber (120) as they breathe in, the air mixing with the aerosol in this chamber and then, via the mouthpiece (2), reaching the respiratory tract and, as appropriate, the user's lungs, a pressure in, and/or a flow rate (V) through, the aerosol chamber (120) or the mouthpiece (2) being monitored by the control unit of the nebuliser, and aerosol production being begun with each breath upon occurrence of an activation criterion and stopped again once a stop criterion is fulfilled.
