Detailed Description:

The secondary objectives of this study are to evaluate whether the use of the LC Sprint Sp Nebulizer results in:

A-shortened duration of oxygen-dependence.

B-reduced side effects by assessing the patient's heart rate before and 30 minutes after the first aerosol and noting the occurrence of desaturation <90% during the nebulisation sessions.

C-increased acceptance of the aerosol, measured via a questionnaire given to the patient's parents at the end of hospitalization (a single questionnaire will be completed by either parent or both parents).

D-shortened length of stay based on the following discharge criteria: observation of a respiratory severity score ≤ 2 (Clinical Asthma Score (CAS)) for at least 12 consecutive hours and a transcutaneous oxygen saturation (SpO2)> 94% when awake or > 91% during sleep.
