    Spacer devices are attachments to the mouthpieces of pressurised metered dose inhalers (pMDIs), and range from tube spacers with a volume of <50 mL to holding chambers with a volume of 750 mL. Compared with a pMDI alone, spacers minimise coordination difficulties, reduce oropharyngeal deposition...

    Management of life-threatening acute severe asthma in children and adults may require anaesthetic and intensive care. The inhaled route for drug delivery is not appropriate when only small respiratory gas volumes are shifted; the i.v. route may be associated with greater side-effects. Magnesium...
