I was watching a programme the other day on ITV where they follow the emergency services. On 1 particular show they where in an A&E dept. An asthmatic patient came in with a life threatening attack. They began to get that under control and then decided to give the guy some magnesium cus it helps asthmatics with life threatening attacks (so they said on the programme).
How does magnesium help?
I've never had a life threatening attack so have never come across it before.
