I appreciate your careful reading of the article, which included an unfortunate literary error.The patient was treated appropriately with a variety of antiasthmatic medications, some of which are rightly termed "β-sympathomimetics" (eg, terbutaline) and not "β-blockers."I am sorry that this error caused confusion to readers.
