FDA SAYS OK TO RESPIRICS MEDICAL DEVICE
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given Respirics Inc. clearance to market its MD Turbo device, which will be the company's first product on the market. MD Turbo, an accessory device used with pressurized meter dose inhalers, will hit the market later this year. The device, which is a little larger than a cell phone, is designed to help patients better coordinate inhalation with activating the drug canister in an inhaler. The product also includes an electronic dose counter that shows patients how many doses remain in their inhaler.
