In brief: Albuterol

Assuming you mean for asthma treatment.
Depending on age, usually kids will be prescribed 1-2 uffs by inhaler every 4-6 hrs. Albuterol is a type of beta-agonist. It acts by activating beta receptors in lungs which results in dilation and easier breathing. Please speak with your physician about actual dosing for your child.
