About COPD(1)

COPD refers to a number of chronic lung disorders in which the airways to the lungs become narrowed and breathing becomes increasingly difficult. The most common forms of COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema and many patients suffer from a combination of the two diseases.

COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, cancer and stroke. Twelve million Americans have been diagnosed with COPD and at least another 12 million have symptoms but have not been diagnosed. COPD is not well understood or recognized - most Americans have not heard of it, not even those who may be living with the condition. The most common cause of COPD is cigarette smoking, which is responsible for an estimated 80 to 90 percent of COPD cases. Estimates of the total incidence of COPD in America range from 24 to 30 million.

About Nebulization

Of the three types of devices used to deliver bronchodilators -- nebulizers, metered-dose inhalers, and dry powder inhalers -- nebulizers require no special technique or coordination, as the medication is converted into a fine mist that the patient inhales through a mouthpiece or face-mask while breathing naturally.(2) Nebulization is an easy and effective method of delivering medicine directly into the lungs for patients, particularly as their symptoms worsen.(3)

With Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution, nebulization may become a more widely used treatment option for many COPD patients at earlier treatment stages who could benefit from twice-daily maintenance dosing of a nebulized LABA such as Perforomist(TM) Inhalation Solution. For example, this new COPD treatment may be a valuable clinical option for many patients whose symptoms are not adequately controlled with their current therapy.(4) COPD patients should consider asking their doctor whether nebulized treatment may be right for them.
