The etiology of magnesium sulfate still unconfirmed as of 2010. However, there still seems to be a great use for this spectacular medication.

In the early 1990s, there were many emergency rooms physicians using this medication for the treatment of severe asthmatic attacks.

In the coming years, we should see a big increase in the use of this electrolyte for many different situations. Be sure to consider mag sulfate as an alternative for severe respiratory distress patients. Finally, be very cognitive of the fact that this medication is not acceptable for everyone.
