APSD of Nebulisers

For devices such as nebulisers, the evaporation of droplets exacerbated by the thermal mass of the impactor can be a problem, especially for drugs in solution. Loss of solvent reduces droplet size, producing artificially low APSD measurements, compromising the integrity of the resulting data. Cooling the impactor to approximately 5°C is the recommended method for overcoming this problem. The recommended flow rate of 15 L/min employed in the APSD testing of nebulisers is lower than that of other OINDPs in order to better represent the tidal breathing conditions employed in their use.
