A Dry Powder Inhaler (DPI) is a device that inhales dry powdered medicine into the lungs. DPIs are frequently used to treat respiratory conditions like COPD, bronchitis, and asthma. In recent years, interest in DPI as an effective and ecologically friendly method of medication delivery to the lung has increased. Only an effective metering mechanism, a well-chosen device, and an appropriate powder composition will allow a dry powder inhaler to achieve these objectives. The three primary categories are nebulizer, pMDI, and DPI. DPIs, which provide medicine to the lungs in the form of a dry powder, are an alternative to pMDI. To ensure that the patient receives the same dosage each time at a varied airflow rate, API particles must be present in the size range of 1 to 10 m. Four different formulation procedures, including carrier-free, drug carrier, drug additive, and drug carrier additive, are used to create DPI. 'Twin Stage Impingner' completes the lung deposition research. The inward breath device, which is primarily divided based on measurements into single-unit and multi-dosage stores, is essential for achieving appropriate delivery of breathed in medication to the lung.
