ABSTRACT
The article cites a study on the effect of nebulized isoproterenol on cardiac conduction in man. The parenteral administration of isoproterenol to patients with bronchospasm can produce profound systemic cardiovascular effects. Therefore, the use of a metered dose of nebulized isoproterenol is now the preferred route of administration. This allows greater predictability of the bronchodilator effects, results in a greater concentration of the bronchodilator at the bronchial smooth muscle site, and decreases the systemic cardiovascular effects of the drug.
