Metadata[+] Show full item record
We do not know. But β2-agonists do not appear to improve symptoms in patients with acute bronchitis or cough (SOR: B, systematic review of low-quality RCTs) and current practice guidelines do not include use of β2-agonists in the treatment of pneumonia (SOR: C, consensus guideline).
