Shaken baby synd,

A disease in which inflammation of the airways causes airflow into and out of the lungs to be restricted.
The muscles of the bronchial tree become tight and the lining of the air passages swells, reducing airflow and producing the characteristic wheezing sound
The prevalence of childhood asthma in the United States has increased since 1980, especially in younger children.
Children's Risk Of Death From Asthma Linked To Family Dysfunction
ScienceDaily (May 20, 1998) — Despite new treatments for asthma, the death rate from this disease nearly doubled among 5- to 24-year-olds in the United States between 1980 and 1993. Although there are no clear explanations, Robert C. Strunk, M.D., a professor of pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, says the vast majority of those deaths could have been prevented by appropriate care and planning. Strunk also has identified children who are most likely to die. These children live in families that, for various reasons, do not function or communicate well. "It's pretty clear that the parents don't pay attention when their child has bad asthma. Conflict or disorder in the family prevents good care or enhances the possibility of recognizing things late. Children just get trapped," Strunk said.

Ephedrine is a member of the adrenergic bronchodilator class of drugs that serve to open up the bronchial tubes of the lungs. Since the 1920s, synthetic versions of this drug have been used as a bronchodilator and nasal decongestant, and for controlling urinary incontinence. Although ephedrine is too slow acting to treat acute allergic attacks, it replaces epinephrine in nonemergency treatment of allergic reactions.
