Study Title: Magnesium Trial in Children
Abstract Summary: This research evaluated the effectiveness of nebulized magnesium sulfate as an adjuvant treatment for acute severe asthma in children.
Methods: The trial was placebo-controlled and involved giving doses of nebulized isotonic MgSO4 to children with acute-severe asthma three times in the first hour of treatment alongside standard treatment.
Summary of Findings: The study supported using nebulized magnesium sulfate in these situations, noting improvements in asthma severity scores in children with more severe attacks and shorter duration of symptoms. No harm was observed from adding magnesium to the standard asthma therapy.
