I am looking for any information regarding prehospital atrovent use, if any.
I also looking for any information about the use of nebulized atropine for
bronchospasm in the prehospital setting.
Any information regarding its use or how both drugs compare to each other
when used in nebulized form would be most helpful

hope they help
We use Atrovent on COPD'ers, usually in the form of a "combi-vent"
updraft...Atrovent and Albuterol mixed in nebulizer. We have pretty good
success with the combi-vent over when we used to only have the Albuterol to
Air goes in and out...blood goes 'round and 'round...
any deviation to this is considered a BAD thing!!!

Actually most COPD'ers are already on one form of Atrovent (Ipatroprium
bromide) or another. They may be using a metered dose inhaler or the nebulized
version. Despite this fact it makes good sense to administer it in conjunction
with the Albuterol simply because it promotes bronchodilation via different
mechanisms than does the Albuterol. It also works synergistically with
Albuterol thereby, in some patients, extending the time of therapeutic action.
