Abstract: The performance of five different compressors (CR60), Porta-Neb, Pulmo-Aide, TurboBoy and Freeway Freedom) was studied in combination with the widely recommended PARI LC PLUS nebuliser for the aerosolisation of a marketed tobramycin solution (TOBI). The droplet size distribution of the generated aerosol was measured with laser diffraction technique at stationary inspiratory flow rates through the nebuliser cup of 20, 30 and 40l N/min. The different compressors showed a distinct difference in droplet size distr…
