@rajan Treatment for acute severe asthma is often done in a hospital. Your healthcare provider will focus on opening up your airways and helping you breathe easier. You may need:
Medicines. Your healthcare provider will give you medicines to ease your symptoms. These may be inhaled, swallowed, or given through an IV (intravenous) line.
Magnesium sulfate. This may be used if other medicines don’t work. It’s given through an IV.
Supplemental oxygen. This helps raise oxygen levels in your body.
Ventilator. If other treatments don’t work, you may be put on a machine to help you breathe.
