In emergency department management of acute childhood asthma, the number of nebulizer treatments required using either levalbuterol or racemic albuterol is not statistically different. (SOR: B-, based on a single RCT.) However, the use of levalbuterol may decrease the rates of hospital admissions. (SOR: B-, based on a single RCT and a retrospective cohort study.)
