FDA approves over-the-counter Primatene Mist inhaler
The FDA this week approved Amphastar Pharmaceuticals‘ (NSDQ:AMPH) over-the-counter Primatene Mist inhaler for the temporary relief of mild symptoms of intermittent asthma. The original version of Amphastar’s Primatene Mist device was taken off the market in 2011 because it contained chlorofluorocarbon propellants – a chemical compound that is linked to depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. The company’s latest product contains hydrofluoroalkane propellants, which are permitted under current U.S. law. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News.

The Critical Role EMS Plays in Fighting the Flu
Influenza has been impacting public health on a global scale since the beginning of recorded history. Influenza, also known as the “flu,” has numerous organizations committed to public health research, developing vaccines, and educating best practices preparing for the upcoming flu season. By gaining an understanding of the flu through history, virology, and how it impacts our society, we can have a better appreciation for the commitment that’s involved with combating the flu.

It ’s About Paramedic Intubation Skill Maintenance, Not ETI vs. SGA
In this study, for all-comers, that was an abysmal 6%. This is an important number because it tells us that overall, successful resuscitation from cardiac arrest is rare and that a number of our efforts may have some statistically significant differences but the absolute effect on the gold standard outcome is rather small. But that’s a story for another time. The focus here is on airway management in cardiac arrest, and the suggestion that the “verdict is out” on whether or not paramedics should be using an endotracheal tube or a supraglottic device.

Conclusion The PART study’s aim was to demonstrate that SGA is superior to SETI. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen. That doesn’t mean this study doesn’t have value. It clearly demonstrated that an important, time-honored and gold standard skill in resuscitation isn’t being practiced effectively by paramedics. The solution should not be to abandon the procedure. The solution is that we need to fix the problem. We need to enhance education, provide more opportunity for skills maintenance and develop systems that ensure that paramedics are regularly practicing these advanced skills. It is ...

Are E-Cigarettes Safe? Here ’s What the Science Says
In 1965, when Herbert Gilbert was granted the first patent on a smoke- and tobacco-­free cigarette, he wrote that the product would “provide a safe and harmless means for and method of smoking.” More than 60 years later, however, modern iterations of Gilbert’s invention have sparked debate in the public-health community. E-cigarettes, which have grown increasingly popular in the past five years, were designed as a tool to help people quit ­smoking—and by doing so they should drastically reduce rates of lung cancer and other diseases. But the question is, does that potential outweigh their po...
