PURPOSE The compatibility, pH, and osmolality of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) nebulizing solution in the presence of ipratropium bromide or fenoterol hydrobromide were studied. METHODS Portions (400 microL) of each mixture were sampled immediately upon mixing and one, two, three, four, five, six, and seven hours after mixing and assayed by high-performance liquid chromatography. Osmolality was measured by sampling 100 microL from the filling cup at a five-minute interval during nebulization and by… Expand

Compatibility and Aerosol Characteristic of Formoterol Fumarate Mixed with Other Nebulizing Solutions
TLDR
The results indicate that admixtures of formoterol with budesonide, ipratropium, cromolyn, or acetylcysteine are physically and chemically compatible, however, admixing or sequential nebulization significantly increased the amount of drug delivered compared with single drug neBulization. Expand
Chemical and physical compatibility of levalbuterol inhalation solution concentrate mixed with budesonide, ipratropium bromide, cromolyn sodium, or acetylcysteine sodium.
TLDR
The 2-drug admixtures the authors studied were compatible for at least 30 min at room temperature and there was no evidence of physical incompatibility with these drugs combinations. Expand
Compatible Stability and Aerosol Characteristics of Atrovent® (Ipratropium Bromide) Mixed with Salbutamol Sulfate, Terbutaline Sulfate, Budesonide, and Acetylcysteine
TLDR
These results endorse the physicochemical compatibility of Atrovent® over 1 h when mixed with other inhalation medications, Considering aerosol characteristics, simultaneous inhalation is more efficient. Expand
Aerosol Characteristics and Physico-Chemical Compatibility of Combivent® (Containing Salbutamol and Ipratropium Bromide) Mixed with Three Other Inhalants: Budesonide, Beclomethasone or N-Acetylcysteine
TLDR
There were no significant differences between Combivent®, Budesonide, Beclomethasone, N-acetylcysteine, and the mixtures in MMAD, FPF, X50, the delivery rate, andthe total delivery, which indicates that the mixture were physically and chemically compatible. Expand
Successful extracorporeal life support after potentially fatal pulmonary oedema caused by inhalation of nitric and hydrofluoric acid fumes.
TLDR
In this case, early ECLS, nebulised antioxidant and antidote were available to treat potentially fatal pulmonary oedema after exposure to nitric and hydrofluoric acid fumes. Expand
Aerosol delivery devices in the treatment of asthma.
  • D. Hess
  • Medicine

TLDR
Systematic reviews and meta-analyses have suggested that each of these aerosol delivery devices can work equally well in patients who can use them correctly, however, many patients use these devices incorrectly, so proper patient education in their use is critical. Expand
A simple RP-HPLC method for the stability-indicating determination of N-acetyl-L-cysteine and N,N’-diacetyl-L-cystine in cell culture media
N'-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) can exist in the reduced form, containing the sulfhydryl (-SH) group, and it can exist in its oxidized disulfide form N,N'-Diacetyl-L-Cystine (Di-NAC). However, anExpand
Mixing and compatibility guide for commonly used aerosolized medications.
TLDR
A compatibility guide for aerosolized medications was developed for use by staff who administer these agents, which includes additional agents, compatibility references on the chart, and compatibility information for pharmacists, nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists. Expand
How Should Aerosols Be Delivered During Invasive Mechanical Ventilation?
TLDR
The techniques of administration of aerosols with various delivery devices during mechanical ventilation are well known, but there continues to be significant variation in clinical practice and guidelines are needed to provide best practices for a wide range of clinical settings encountered in mechanically ventilated patients. Expand
Inhalation solutions: which one are allowed to be mixed? Physico-chemical compatibility of drug solutions in nebulizers.
TLDR
The aerodynamic behaviour of physico-chemical mixtures needs to be studied before a final recommendation of simultaneous nebulization of compatible admixtures can be made. Expand

Osmolality changes in nebulizer solutions.
TLDR
It is shown that after 10-15 min of nebulization osmotic changes occur in the nebulizer cup and airstream and that these changes differ according to the drug mixtures and the amount of the solution in theNebulizer chamber. Expand
Osmolality and pH of anti-asthmatic drug solutions
TLDR
P pH and osmolality of antiasthmatic drug solutions and mixtures were measured in the nebulizer at 0, 1, 2, 5, 10 and 15 minutes of nebulisation and it was suggested to dilute these drugs with saline 0.9% and to restrict neBulisation time to 10 minutes, since the most striking increase of osmlality was noted after 10 minutes. Expand
Comparative efficacy of salbutamol, ipratropium, and cromoglycate in the prevention of bronchospasm induced by exercise and hyperosmolar challenges.
TLDR
There was no statistically significant difference in the mean percent protection after HY or EX challenges when these challenges were preceded by S, I, or C, which suggests that hyperosmolarity, although it may not be the sole factor involved, plays a role in EX-induced bronchospasm. Expand
Clinical and physiological evaluation of mucolytic agents nebulized with isoproterenol: 10% N-acetylcysteine versus 10% 2-mercaptoethane sulphonate
TLDR
Both 10% 2-mercaptoethane sulphonate and 10% N-acetylcysteine were highly effective in thinning mucoid, mucopurulent or purulent sputum and neither mucolytic agent was associated with bronchospasm in any patient when nebulized with isoproterenol. Expand
Effects of pH and osmolarity on aerosol-induced cough in normal volunteers.
TLDR
The chemosensitivity of cough receptors stimulated by inhalation of aqueous aerosols was evaluated in 21 normal volunteers in three experiments and the response to hypertonic saline was due to the high ionic content of the solutions or to its hypertonicity. Expand
Acidity potentiates bronchoconstriction induced by hypoosmolar aerosols.
TLDR
Isoosmolar H2SO4 did not increase SRaw by 100% in any subjects, even at the maximal nebulizer output that delivered a concentration of H 2SO4 in excess of 40 mg/m3, and mean values of PO100 did not differ among the 3 acids studied. Expand
Nebulization of N-acetylcysteine combined with a bronchodilator in patients with chronic bronchitis. A controlled study.
TLDR
It is concluded that whenever N-acetylcysteine is administered, a bronchodilator should be nebulized concomitantly unless there is a clear contraindication to its use. Expand
PARADOXICAL DETERIORATION IN LUNG FUNCTION AFTER NEBULISED SALBUTAMOL IN WHEEZY INFANTS
TLDR
In 13 infants with a history of wheezing, airways resistance and specific conductance worsened after administration of nebulised salbutamol (0.5 ml sabutamol respirator solution in 1. 5 ml normal saline), but even with an initially iso-osmolar solution osmolality increased with time of neBulisation because of evaporation. Expand
Stability of five catecholamines and terbutaline sulfate in 5% dextrose injection in the absence and presence of aminophylline.
TLDR
Visual inspection was found to be grossly inadequate for estimating the stability of catecholamines to autoxidation and terbutaline sulfate was considerably more stable than epinephrine hydrochloride or isoproterenol hydrochlorides. Expand

TLDR
The compatibility of admixtures consisting of cromolyn and bronchodilators and the anticholinergic agent ipratropium, commercially available as nebulizer solutions, becomes an important issue. Expand
