Remember Dr.'s plan
A 5 year-old child who needed albuterol
oral inhalers or albuterol nebulizer
treatments in the past for coughing or wheezing
, may need the same treatments for similar symptoms in the future.
The doctor will have given instructions to the parents on "home use" of the inhalers and nebulizer. Parents should call the doctor if unclear on instructions. A child should not use somebody else's medicine.
