Not Provided
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
COPD
  • Device: Pulsehaler
  • Drug: Nebulizer & Albuterol 0.5ml
    Albuterol aerosolized by a nebulizer
  • Experimental: Pulsehaler
