Any Asthma treatments at the Doctor's office that can provide relief?
My 74 year old father suffers from asthma -- he's taking two kinds of medicines, has been seen by a doctor... but has weeks where he has it much worse than others.
Is there a treatment that he can get at the doctor's office that might provide him with some relief when his asthma is much worse than other times? Poor guy is really out of breath...can hardly walk around the house.

without knowing what he is taking it's hard to say what else could help. I assume he is on a daily long term preventer (Flovent, Advair, etc) and has a rescue inhaler (albuterol). Breathing treatments via a nebulizer are possible at home if so prescribed.
