Mg+ for COPD/Asthma

Mizzou EM - January 16, 2017 - By mizzouem 
"In what populations does intravenous or nebulized magnesium sulfate provide benefit?
BOTTOM LINE
The research on the benefit of magnesium sulfate- either intravenous or nebulized- for the treatment of acute exacerbations of asthma and COPD are scattered and of varying quality, sample size, and relevance to the US population. However, there does appear to be some support of use of intravenous magnesium in the treatment of asthma and potentially for COPD exacerbations– although the volume data on the latter is even more lacking. There did not, however, appear to be any significant adverse effects of magnesium infusion or inhaled therapy in the studies evaluated, suggesting that it may be worth consideration in patients who do not demonstrate significant improvement with initiation of standard therapy."
