|Applicants:||VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY
|Inventors:||LONGEST, Philip Worth
|Title:||DEVICES, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS FOR DRY POWDER THERAPIES|
Containment units, dry powder inhalers, delivery systems, and methods for the same are disclosed. Exemplary devices are configured to have inlets and outlets which are formed with the containment walls of a containment unit. Air jets formed by the configuration of inlet(s) and outlet(s) inside the containment unit create significant turbulence and deaggregate the powder. Delivery system components downstream of the containment unit may integrate the exiting aerosol plume with a low flow nasal cannula air stream for delivery to a subject.
