Summary
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways. In susceptible individuals this inflammation causes recurrent episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, cough, and other symptoms. Asthma medications fall into 2 general classes: medications for long-term control and medications for quick relief of airflow obstruction and symptoms. Medications for quick relief of bronchoconstriction and acute symptoms include short-acting beta2-agonists and anticholinergics. The purpose of this review is to compare the benefits and harms of short-acting beta2-agonists and ipratropium bromide used for quick relief of asthma symptoms
