Tips to Remember: Childhood Asthma, American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology:"Asthma is the most common serious chronic disease of childhood, affecting nearly five million children in the United States. Characterized by coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and wheezing, asthma is the cause of almost three million physician visits and 200,000 hospitalizations each year. In infants and children, asthma may appear as cough, rapid or noisy breathing in and out, or chest congestion, without the other symptoms seen in adults."

Treating Asthma With Bronchodilators , Beta 2-agonists, Cleveland Clinic Department of Patient Education and Health Information:"Beta 2-agonists - Short-acting inhaled forms include: Albuterol (Proventil® HFA, Ventolin® HFA, Accuneb®, ProAir®) Metaproterenol (Alupent®) Levalbuterol (Xoponex® HFA, Xoponex® nebulizer solution) Pirbuterol (Maxair®) Albuterol and ipatropium bromide combination (Combivent® metered dose inhaler; DuoNeb®) Short-acting beta 2-agonists are also called "quick acting" or "rescue" medicines because they relieve asthma symptoms very quickly by opening the airways. These inhalers are the best for treating sudden and severe or new asthma symptoms. They work within 20 minutes and last four to six hours. They are also the medicines to use 15 to 20 minutes before exercise to prevent exercise-induced asthma symptoms."
