Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Ventolin Inhaler? 

Ventolin is an inhaler that helps relieve the symptoms of asthma in an asthmatic attack, primarily referring to trouble breathing. The inhaler contains the active ingredient salbutamol which helps free up the airways in the lungs, providing immediate relief and making breathing easier.

Ventolin is an albuterol inhaler which can help alleviate the symptoms of bronchospasm and asthma. The treatment acts rapidly and provides relief for up to 6 hours at minimum. The inhaler helps open up the airways inside the lungs and helps asthma patients who experience difficulty breathing.

What Is An Albuterol Inhaler? 

Ventolin Inhaler is sometimes referred to as Salbutamol and Albuterol and is a familiar brand of a blue inhaler which helps asthma patients manage their symptoms. This type of inhaler helps with symptoms such as difficulty or pain breathing and tightness in the chest.

The symptoms are usually resolved with only one or two doses of the inhaler. They can help patients manage their symptoms for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours. The effect of the pump is nearly immediate.

The treatment is used on a need-to basis, as soon as the patient feels an onset of these symptoms due to an asthma attack. These inhalers are used only if the symptoms manifest, which occurs very rarely if the condition is kept in check.

What is A Blue Asthma Inhaler? 

Ventolin belongs to a group of blue inhalers with salbutamol as their active ingredient. Salbutamol is also the generic counterpart of the branded Ventolin with the same strength and effect, but usually at a lower price. These inhalers come in blue, which is how they got the popular name “blue inhaler”.

Blue asthma inhalers can help with asthma symptoms such as difficulty breathing and tightness in the chest when breathing, which is why they are often referred to as relievers.

What Is A Salbutamol Inhaler? 

Salbutamol is the active ingredient of Ventolin and other types of blue inhalers, including branded and generic salbutamol inhalers. The contents of the pump are inhaled and sent directly to the lungs where they help free up the airways and make breathing easier for asthma patients. The treatment can help alleviate the symptoms within 5 to 20 minutes from the moment of inhalation.

If you experience symptoms such as difficulty breathing or tightness of the chest, you can use the inhaler to relieve them. You can also use the inhaler as prevention if you know you are going to be exposed to an asthmatic attack trigger such as pollen, dust or pet hair. If you suffer from asthma attacks caused by exercise, you can use the inhaler before the planned activity.

You should take between 1 to 2 puffs which contain up to 200 micrograms of the active ingredient salbutamol.

Want To Know More About Ventolin?

Much like other blue inhalers or bronchodilators, Ventolin works by releasing its active ingredient, salbutamol into the lungs, widening the airways and enabling breathing. It can also help soothe the inflammation in the lungs and clear any mucus that may be obstructing the airways.

The inhaler can help alleviate asthma symptoms as well as other breathing issues, as well as prevent an asthma attack if used before contact with a known trigger such as pollen, hair or physical activity. Ventolin is a prescription-based medicine.

You should always follow the instructions provided by your doctor and found in the leaflet included with the package. Do not modify the dose or use the inhaler longer than your doctor indicated. Follow the instructions provided with the prescription label and according to the dose prescribed. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this medication, consult your doctor.

There are two ways to use the treatment: with a nebulizer device or with an inhaler. This will be decided by your doctor. Do not use the package without the inhaler, as dosing can be difficult without it. When you use the inhaler, shake the bottle before you use it every time. Remove the cap off the mouthpiece. Breathe out, put the inhaler in your mouth and close your mouth. Push down the pump and breathe slowly. Hold your breath for 10 seconds then breathe out.

Keep the inhaler clean and dry at all times and always keep the cap on. Clean the inhaler at least once a week. Remove the pump and rin it under warm water for a minute. Dry it off completely before reconnecting to the inhaler.

Ventolin should only be used from the inhaler. It should be inhaled every four to six hours when used to prevent bronchospasm or treat its symptoms. With some patients, one inhalation every four hours is enough. You can also use Ventolin to prevent bronchospasm as a result of intense exercise. In this case, Ventolin should be taken twice, up to thirty minutes before the planned activity.

You need to prime the bottle before using it for the first time or if you haven’t used it for more than 14 days. Release four sprays from the inhaler into the air. Aim away from the face and shake the canister after each release.

Use the inhaler exactly as instructed by your doctor and according to the schedule your doctor provided with the prescription. If you skip a dose, use it as soon as you remember.

The inhaler should only be used by the person it was prescribed for. Do not share or offer to anyone else. Avoid being exposed to any allergens while you are using the inhaler, as it may hinder your breathing further.

If your doctor prescribed using more than one inhalation, make sure to wait at least a minute between each inhalation. Remember to shake it between uses.

Keep the pump clean and dry at all times. Clean the inhaler at least once a week.
