In brief: Albuterol and HF

Patients with heart failure are prone to develop heart rhythm disturbances, some of which can be fatal.
Albuterol can stimulate the heart and produce rhythm disturbances that will be potentially dangerous for patients with heart failure.

In brief: It is used

But it can cause undesirable cardiac side-effects so the benefits must be weighed against the risks.
