Reversing acute bronchoconstriction in asthma: the effect of bronchodilator tolerance after treatment with formoterol.

Abstract

Continuous treatment with a short-acting beta2-agonist can lead to reduced bronchodilator responsiveness during acute bronchoconstriction. This study evaluated bronchodilator tolerance to salbutamol following regular treatment with a long-acting beta2-agonist, formoterol. The modifying effect of intravenous corticosteroid was also studied. Ten asthmatic… (More)
