Dr. Raul Valor, Pulmonologist with Baptist Health South Florida, says the most important treatment for asthma is inhaled steroids, because they keep asthma under control and they are probably the mainstay of treatment.

He also explains there are long-acting bronchodilators, which are similar to the rescue inhaler, but have a longer duration (between 12 and 24 hours).
