Seeking clarification for salbutamol administration down ETT based on the Ask MAC posted April 3rd regarding ETT administration: Are we still able to use our MDI-adapter wherein the MDI canister is inserted and left in, creating a closed-system circuit?


Salbutamol administration with MDI-adapter creating a closed-system would be the single exception to withholding endotracheal tube administered medications. However, you will need to check with your service regarding the equipment specs to ensure the devices carried are verified as closed-system, prior to use.
