Ver discusión.
Específicamente lo que caracteriza a los nebulizadores breath-enhanced (BEN) es que mantienen un flujo de administracion contínuo que aumenta con la inspiración del paciente y disminuye cuando espira. De ahí que la idea más ajustada creo que podría ser potenciados por/con la respiración.

RATIONALE: BANs only deliver medication during inhalation. BENs continue to deliver aerosol (at a lower rate) during exhalation. If the inspiratory/expiratory (I/E) ratio of a patient decreases in obstructive lung disease, drug delivery efficiency by BEN may reduce. We compared the delivery of a corticosteroid by both types of nebulizer in a lab study.

Existen diferentes tipos de “pipetas” con el fin de aumentar la deposición pulmonar. (pipetas clásicas o cerradas, asistidas por la inspiración y activadas por la inspiración. La elección de cada una de ellas depende del médico y de la medicación a nebulizar.

Pipetas Abiertas o Asistidas durante la respiración

¨Breath-actuated (BAN)¨would be ¨activados por la inspiración¨ or ¨dosimétricos¨.

If you read the last link it is explained with pictures. One delivers more when inhaling (BEN). The other, only when inhaling (BAN).
