Asthma is a common disease. The main stay of "rescue" therapy in asthma is the administration of nebulized bronchodilators. The prompt administration of these agents can be life saving. Always question the patient about home beta-2 agonist used. Remember the phenomenon of tachyphylaxis and consider switching to a different medication in the same class if the patient reports prolonged usage or ineffectiveness of their current bronchodilator. Remember asthma can be life threatening.
