Description

What is Airomir Salabutamol?

Airomir Salabutamol is used to relieve symptoms of asthma and COPD such as coughing, wheezing and feeling breathless. It works by relaxing the muscles of the airways into the lungs which makes it easier to breathe.

Salabutamol inhalers are called ‘reliever’ inhalers because they give you quick relief from breathing problems as required, only when you need them. In most cases, you will be given another inhaler to ‘prevent’ your symptoms and you should use this regularly every day.
If you need to use your salabutamol inhaler more than 3 times a week, it could be a sign that your breathing problem is not well controlled.

See our other Asthma products, here.

How and when to use it

You should only use Airomir Salbutamol when required, for instance, if you notice symptoms of asthma such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness within the chest. You can also use it when you know you will be doing an activity that could make you breathless.

For Adults the recommended dose is:

  • 1 or 2 puffs of Airomir Salabutamol as and when required with a maximum of 4 times in 24 hours- this is regardless of whether you have had 1 puff or 2 puffs at a time
  • Asthma attacks can escalate very quickly so if you are struggling to breathe or have symptoms that are not improving, please go to the hospital immediately/call an ambulance.

    Asthma

    What is Asthma?

    Asthma is a long- term inflammatory lung condition that causes difficulty breathing. It is a common ailment that affects people of all ages and often begins during childhood, although it can also develop for the first time in adults.
    There is currently no cure for asthma but there are simple treatments that can help control the symptoms so that it does not have a big effect on your day to day life.

    Symptoms
    The main symptoms of asthma are:

    ● Wheezing (a whistling sound when breathing)

    ● Breathlessness

    ● A tight chest, which can often feel like a band is being tightening around it

    ● Coughing

    At times these symptoms can intensify, and this is known as an asthma attack. As there are other conditions that can have similar symptoms to an asthma attack, it is important to get a correct diagnosis so that you can receive the appropriate treatment. Consult your GP as they will be able to carry out some simple tests based on your symptoms.

    Treatments

    The main types of treatment for asthma are

    ● Reliever inhalers – these are used when needed to provide quick relief from asthma symptoms (salbutamol)

    ● Preventer inhalers (steroid) – these are used every day for the prevention of asthma symptoms

    ● Additional medication- Some people may also need to take tablets to manage their symptoms

    Causes and triggers

    Asthma occurs when the breathing tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs become inflamed and they begin to swell. The swelling causes the tubes to become highly sensitive and they temporarily narrow. This can occur without any triggers but there are common causes which include:

    ● Allergies – these can include house dust mites, animal fur or pollen

    ● Smoke, pollution and cold air

    ● Exercise

    ● Infections such as colds or flu

    By Identifying your asthma triggers, you can know what to avoid and this can help you keep your symptoms under control.
