The AKITA® JET Inhalation System is a reusable, breath-actuated jet nebuliser designed to aerosolize liquid medications.
It guides the patient to inhale with a pre-set inspiratory flow rate and inhalation volume/time to ensure precise and targeted drug delivery to the patient’s lungs. The device achieves a more favorable regional deposition (higher peripheral, and lower oropharyngeal and central deposition) and lower interpatient lung deposition variability, compared with conventional nebulisers [1-5].
AKITA®JET is a CE marked medical device (CE0123)
IMPORTANT NOTE: AKITA® JET is not for sale on the US market
