Controlled breathing is difficult for patients with a terminal illness, and a metered-dose inhaler
with a spacer, in addition to allowing the patient to breathe more normally, provides the same drug delivery as using the more invasive and expensive nebulizer," said Dr.
Maxair Autohaler employs the latest technology that provides consistent dose delivery at the right time in the breathing cycle, and is the only breath-actuated metered-dose inhaler

It will be available, by prescription, as a metered-dose inhaler
The study evaluated airway function improvement with BROVANA and salmeterol (SEREVENT([R])) metered-dose inhaler

The survey, sponsored by 3M Pharmaceuticals, a pioneer in developing metered-dose inhaler
technology, was conducted with 351 office-based physicians (152 allergists and 199 pulmonologists) who used MDIs to treat at least some of their patients with reversible obstructive airway disease.
This multicenter, double-blind, double-dummy, randomized Phase III study of 717 patients evaluated airway function improvement in patients with COPD who were treated with either arformoterol 50 micrograms, or (mu)g once daily, arformoterol 25 (mu)g twice daily, arformoterol 15 (mu)g twice daily, salmeterol metered-dose inhaler
(SEREVENT(R)) 42 (mu)g twice daily, or placebo.
