Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also known as COPD, is the fourth leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, cancer, and stroke. It is estimated that approximately 12 million Americans have been diagnosed with the disease, and at least another 12 million have symptoms, but have not been diagnosed.
Recently, 2 new medications have been approved for COPD symptoms, one from Sepracor (Brovana) and one from Dey LP (Perforomist). Both products used PARI Nebulizers exclusively in all the pivotal clinical trials that proved safety and efficacy. These companies chose PARI products based on PARI's long track record of clinical trial experience.
