Pulmonary route is extensively studied for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary and extra pulmonary disease conditions such as asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, and bronchitis. Formulation design, inhalation device and particle size play key role in determining the aerosol performance. The lack of desired clinical outcome along with the problem regarding efficacy or any adverse drug effect may arise due to improper training and education in use of the device to control the actuation and aerosol inhalation. This review summarizes the difference in the mechanistic features of current marketed aerosol delivery devices with respect to mechanism of aerosol generation with possible advancements in the aerosol design. The delivery options in the pulmonary route and its merits together with the limitations are also discussed. An update is provided regarding the current research and clinical outcome of the use of inhalational technology.
