|Title of Invention||
|Abstract||Inhalers used for Asthmatics from kids to aged are difficult to coordinate in stress leading to poor relief. An alerting Inhaler helps timing of spray always. The new inhaler has an air inlet with a cover, with a hole to develop deep, longer inspiration. A whistle behind the air inlet gives sound alert for spray trigger. The whistle leads to spray rod of a drug cannister with a fine hole to back spray into an adjustable mouthpiece. The mouthpiece directs the spray into wind passages and lungs for good effect. The inhaler is kept in mouth, air is sucked in through the air inlet, the whistle gives an alert, the spray cannister is pressed to release a sprays at the back of mouthpiece which travels to lungs for better effect. The inhaler is better bee use of alert, slow, deeper inspiration, adjustable mouth piece and air inlet for an individual variation.|
|Full Text||This is an alerting Inhaler with improved spary useful for asthmatics. Existing inhalers spray the mouth have no alert (difficult for kids aged) and te not facilitate deep inspiration for drug spread in the lungs.
The new inhaler gives a whistle or vibration to alert the user to spray (now made easy for kids 6 aged), directs more spray into wind pas stages and promotes longer and deeper inspiration for the spray to spread to all areas
of the lungs.
The inhaler has a narrower air flow pipe comprising of in air inlet with a hole (adjustable for slow deep inspiration) a whistle as the air is sucked, a spray rod with a fine hole and a back mouth piece (also adjustable now, for lips to throat distance).
The whistle alerts for correct spray before maximal Inspiration, the air inlet hole delays and deepens importation, and the mouthpiece is adjustable for correct spray into throat and wind pipes leading to lungs.
The invention will be described with reference to accompanying diagrams wherein
Fig (l) shows the outside view
Fig.(2) shows the parts
Fig.(3) shows the cross section in action
Fig, (4) shows a modification
The inhaler comprises of an air suction plastic tube. At the front is the air inlet (l), with a cover (2) with a
chosen hole six size. The air Inlet leads to a whistle or vibrator (3) which helps to time the spray in inspiration correctly, followed by a spray rod (4) of the drug spray cannister (5). The spray rod has a fine hole to spray the drug back into mouth. The mouthpiece (6) is formed of two concenric tubes in the outer sliding on the by a screw thread or sliding slot for adjustment of lips to throat distance which decreases mouth spray.
To use, the mouth piece is kept in the mouth after
adjustment of lip-throat distance and inspiration started, which gives a whistle. The spray cannister is pressed to release the spray into wind pipes and lungs. The deeper and prolonged inspiration spreads the drug spray to all parts of lungs, for a better effects
The device can be modified. The stopper of air inlet can have an adjustable hole or different stoppers with different holes may be used for prolonged deep inspiration; The spray cannister may be mounted as in fig. 4 in the long axis of the Inhaler; The mouth piece tubes may be adjusted on a screw or sliding mechanism. Electronic sensing and spraying is possible but wills makes the device costly and heavy. The air Inlet may be above as in fig 4 or centre fig. 1 as below. Whistle may be small flaps or any type, For deaf people . vibrator of metallic swaying leaflets may be used. The flaps should be fixed as not to fly off.
(1) An inhaler comprising of an air inlet guarded by a stopper with an appropriate hole, the said air inlet fixed to a whistle or vibrator, the said whistle is fixed to a spray path, the said spray path is fixed to a mouth piece for the spray with the inspired air to flow into the lungs.
(2) an inhaler as daisies in claim 1, wherein the said air Inlet has a cover at the front, the said cover having a hole preferably adjustable for entry of air.
(3) an inhaler as claimed in claim 1, wherein the said whistle or vibrator is placed before the spray, the said whistle is activated by the inspired air and not expired air, the said whistle alerts to time the spray.
(4) an Inhaler as claimed in claim 1, wherein the said
spray path comprises of a drug spray cannister with a spray rod, the said spray rod fixed behind the said whistle, the said spray rod having a fine hole for the Spray to be formed, the said spray is directed back through the mouthpiece into lungs.
(5) an inhaler as claimed in claim 1, wherein the said mouthpiece comprises of an outer tubes sliding on the inner tube on a screw or slot to adjust lip to throat distance for correct spray.
(€) an inhaler as claimed in claim 1, wherein the said
drug connister is placed along the long axia to the said air path,
(7) an inhaler as claimed in claim 1, wherein the said
drug cannister is placed perpendicular to the
(8) an inhaler as claimed in claim 1, wherein the
vibrator in placed instead of the vhistle before the
said spray to alert the user by vibratiom.
