The safety of nebulization with 3 to 5 ml of adrenaline (1:1000) in children: an evidence based review

This review assessed the safety of 3 to 5 mL of nebulised adrenaline (1:1,000) in children with acute inflammatory airways obstruction. The authors concluded that 3 to 5 mL of nebulised adrenaline is safe. The evidence appears to support the authors' conclusion. However, the limited number of generally small studies and the lack of an assessment of study quality make the reliability of the results uncertain.

Respiratory Tract Infections - Antibiotic Prescribing: Prescribing of Antibiotics for Self-Limiting Respiratory Tract Infections in Adults and Children in Primary Care

Respiratory tract infection (RTI) is defined as any infectious disease of the upper or lower respiratory tract. Upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) include the common cold, laryngitis, pharyngitis/tonsillitis, acute rhinitis, acute rhinosinusitis and acute otitis media. Lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) include acute bronchitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia and tracheitis. Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for RTIs in adults and children in primary care. General practice consultation rates in England and Wales show that a quarter of the population will visit their GP because of an RTI each year (Ashworth et al. 2005). RTIs are the reason for 60% of all antibiotic prescribing in general practice, and this constitutes a significant cost to the NHS. Annual prescribing costs for acute cough alone exceed £15 million (Lindbaek 2006).
