Often an i v is started to give lots of fluids and for administration of steroids and antibiotics.
The use of nebulized medicine often albuterol frequently and chest clapping and suctioning of secretions . If needed oxygen is given to help as well.

In brief: Lots
If an asthmatic goes to the hospital one should expect a thorough evaluation by a physician to confirm and /or refute that asthma is the diagnosis.
If asthma is diagnosed, then aggressive treatment with the following meds are possible: oxygen, bronchodilators, steroids and other medicines are possible.
