      We usually hear about rescue medications in regard to asthma. Here is
      a page that explains those. It may give you some ideas.

      These medications are not just "podpurny" or "doplnkovy". They really
      are for the purpose of rescuing someone who is in serious trouble of
      grave medical problems or even death if they don't get some kind of
      quick relief.
