Ventolin inhalers provide effective short-term relief from asthma and can prevent asthma symptoms from occurring after exercise. Ventolin is the most popular type of 'reliever' inhaler. The active ingredient is salbutamol, which will dilate the airways and ease breathing within five minutes. This is a very reliable inhaler for emergency asthma attacks.
Two forms of Ventolin inhaler are available: the Accuhaler and the Evohaler. The Accuhaler is a plastic device which contains a 60-blister strip. Each of these contains a 200mcg dosage that combines microfine salbutamol and lactose. The Evohaler is a pressurised metal device – each inhalation contains 100mcg of salbutamol. The propellant used in the Evohaler is HFA-134a, which is much less harmful to the environment than older propellants. Each of these treatments will provide effective relief after one or two doses.
