Razavi, S., Salamati, P., Harandi, A., and Ghanei, M. (2013). Prevention and Treatment of Respiratory Consequences Induced by Sulfur Mustard in Iranian Casualties. International Journal of Preventive Medicine. 4(4): 383–389.
The authors conducted a literature review of 50 articles related to prevention and treatment of respiratory problems induced by sulfur mustard. They found that most treatments were directed at symptom alleviation, and that oxygen supplementation, tracheostomy in laryngospasm, use of moist air, respiratory physical therapy, mucolytic agents and bronchodilators used in the acute phase led to improved lung injury outcomes.
