It is important to monitor breath sounds and respiratory rate during treatment of an asthma attack due to potential changes in pathology that could lead to life-threatening complications or exacerbate preexisting conditions such as heart arrhythmia. Noninvasive monitoring should be done after every 15 minutes of therapy and invasive monitoring when possible (eg, arterial line). If either condition worsens significantly with first dose, recheck for tissue perfusion abnormality before proceeding further; also consider administering oxygen while waiting on results from tests if patient has not been stabilized by a bronchodilator.
