Claudia, I have 2 cats with asthma (and 2 of my angel cats had asthma). Good
idea to use inhaled meds. That was a very serious attack your kitty had.
Inhaled meds go directly to the lungs (and avoid all the side effects of
oral steroids). They have kept Frankie stable for 5 years. We use Flovent
daily and Albuterol for attacks. Untreated asthma can scar the lungs and can
lead to pneumonia and other ailments. 

Yahoo has at least 3 feline asthma groups.

Claudia, I don't know about a home made oxygen tank but know several
people in the heart group have made an oxygen tent.  They wrap a small
carrier in plastic (shower curtain or trash bag) then put the line from the
oxygen tank into the carrier.  
Here is the link for the yahoo heart group.
I know there is a yahoo asthma  group but I do not have a link for it.
Hugs for your kitty

I'm relatively new to this board.  I'm so glad that something like
this exists for people with fiv cats.  There's some really great advice on
here.  I have a question:  someone told me about home-made Oxygen tanks for
cats.  I have an fiv kitty who also has asthma.  I'm cautious about using
Steroids on her.  One time she ahd a really bad episode, couphing, panting,
lying on her side.  IT was awful. I rushed her to the vet.  THey of course
an Oxygen tank.  Anyway,  I'd really appreciate the instructions, if
anyone had them.  Thank you, Claudia
