  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To compare nebulizers to MDIs for bronchodilator delivery for invasively ventilated critically ill adult patients in terms of physiological response and patient outcomes. Subgroup analyses are planned according to other ventilation and bronchodilation strategies, ventilator settings and administration variables.
