Nebulisers or spacers for the administration of bronchodilators to those with asthma attendingemergency departments?

Naomi Mason, Nicola Roberts, Nick Yard, Martyn R Partridge

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Systematic reviews and national guidelines conclude that the nebulised route of administration of bronchodilators has no advantage over the use of a spacer in moderately severe exacerbations of asthma. Whether this recommendation is implemented and whether it might affect use of staff time is unknown.
