Thank you for the input.
I am sorry for her symptoms.
Albuterol should be given 4-6 hourly.
More frequent administration is not recommended without examination of doctor.
You can keep the room warm & humidified.
Please give her adequate fluid.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
