What is Salbutamol?

Salbutamol is used for the treatment of breathing difficulties caused by asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

Salbutamol is also used to prevent asthma symptoms caused by physical exercise or allergenic stimuli such as dust, pollen, cats, dogs, and tobacco smoke.

Salbutamol dilates the airways thus facilitating the passage of air. Salbutamol should be used primarily to relieve symptoms, rather than as a regular treatment. Salbutamol is indicated in adults, adolescents, and children aged between 4 and 11 years.

How does it work?

Selective agonist of short-acting beta-2 adrenergic receptors. Acts on beta-2 receptors adrenergic of the bronchial muscle, relieving bronchospasm. Little or no action on the receptors beta-1 cardiac. After inhalation administration, only 10-20% of the dose reaches the lower airways. The rest of the dose is either retained in the device or ingested. It is absorbed by the lung tissue but is not metabolized in the lung. When entering the systemic circulation, metabolizes in the liver. It is excreted in the urine as unaltered salbutamol and as inactive phenolic sulfate. The ingested portion of the inhaled dose is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Suffers a significant first-pass metabolism (inactive phenolic sulfate). Both the drug and the metabolite are excreted in the urine.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Salbutamol relaxes the muscles of the walls of the small airways of the lungs. This helps open up the airways and relieve chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing so your child can breathe easier. That type of medication, called a bronchodilator, has a calming effect. Salbutamol also helps prevent shortness of breath and wheezing during exercise, that is, exercise-induced asthma.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist again.

Instructions for the Nebule dose and use are:

Inhale in a sitting or standing position, as possible.

  1. Remove the protective cap. Check the interior and exterior cleanliness of the nozzle.
  2. Shake the inhaler well for a few seconds before use.
  3. Hold the inhaler upright, with the bottom of the canister up, and put your thumb on the bottom, under the mouthpiece. Blow or blow as much air as you can comfortably, but not inside the nozzle.
  4. Put the mouthpiece in your mouth, between your teeth, and close your lips over it, but don't bite it.
  5. Right after you start to breathe in through your mouth, press the top of the inhaler to release the medicine while continuing to breathe deeply and steadily.
  6. Hold your breath for 5 to 10 seconds. Remove the inhaler from your mouth and your finger from the top.
  7. If you need another discharge, keep the inhaler upright and wait about half a minute before repeating steps 2 through 6.
  8. Put on the mouthpiece guard after use to keep it free of dust and lint, pushing firmly and suddenly.

Cleaning

To avoid or if blocked inhaler, clean yourself at least once a week as described below:

Remove the metal tube from the plastic case of the inhaler and remove the mouthpiece cap.

  1. Wash the plastic box and the mouthpiece cap in warm water. Do not try to remove a possible residual medicine around the mouthpiece with a sharp object, such as a needle.
  2. You can add a mild detergent to the water, and then rinse with clean running water before drying. Do not immerse the metal tube in water.
  3. Let the plastic box and mouthpiece cap dry in a warm, dry place. Avoid excessive heat.
  4. Replace the tube and mouthpiece cap.
