ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the studies conducted by Ari and colleagues on the important issues related to medication delivery during the process of mechanical respiration. He argues that bias flow will not affect the delivery of medication with vibrating-mesh nebulizer to alleviate the inhalation. An overview of the bronchodilators which represents a life-saving intervention is offered. The author suggests that there a useful information in designing a bronchodilators to address clinical efficacy.
