To the Editor: In their study comparing controlled delivery of high humidity, low humidity, and mist therapy for croup in emergency departments, Dr Scolnik and colleagues1 demonstrated that mist therapy does not lead to an improvement in croup scores. Their study also suggests that a reexamination of the use of aerosolized epinephrine in mild croup is warranted.
