    00:00 Now, pharmacology and the respiratory system.

    00:03 Remember, asthma is both inflammation and bronchoconstriction.

    00:06 For the inflammation, we're gonna give corticosteroids like beclamethasone.

    00:11 For the bronchoconstriction, for acute attacks, we're gonna give a short-acting inhaled bronchodilator like Albuterol.

    00:19 Remember, that's a SABA so go ahead and write that in. S-A-B-A.

    00:23 Those are short-acting inhaled bronchodilators.

    00:27 It's the route of choice in an acute attack.
