  • Objective : Wheezy infants are in need of urgent bronchodilatation owing to their intermittent bronchoconstriction. β2 agonists are frequently used in emergencies and have previously shown to increase the QT dispersion (QTd), which may be associate with high risk of cardiac arrhythmia, in asthmatics. However, effect of low dose β2 agonist therapy in combination with the anticholinergic agents on QTd in wheezy infants is not known. This study aimed to assess the effect of standard dose of… CONTINUE READING
