December 21, 2011
The AARC was just contacted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asking for assistance in communicating to respiratory therapists about the imminent phase out of over-the-counter Primatene Mist.
According to the FDA statement:
The FDA requests that respiratory therapists be aware of Primatene Mist’s removal and be prepared for the patients that might show up in clinics and EDs once it becomes unavailable.
