Airomir contains the active ingredient Salbutamol Sulphate, which is used to treat the condition Asthma. Airmoir inhaler is manufactured by Teva UK and is classified as a prescription only medicine (POM). Airomir, or salbutamol (the active ingredient), is used to relieve breathing problems by opening the airways in the lungs.
Salbutamol belongs to a category of medicines called, short-acting beta 2 agonists. This type of medicine works by stimulating the beta 2 receptors found in the lungs. This stimulation causes the muscles in the airways to relax, allowing them to open up. Conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), restrict the amount of air that can get in and out of the lungs. Using Airomir or salbutamol will open these restricted airways, making it easier for an individual to breathe.
Salbutamol based inhalers are known as ‘relievers’. This is because when salbutamol is administered directly into the lungs it works quickly to relieve the symptoms of asthma attacks, shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing and tightness of the chest. Salbutamol can also be used prior to exercising or exposure to allergens. This can help reduce the associated wheezing that can be triggered by both.
Airomir is a metered dose inhaler. This is sometimes referred to as an MDI or aerosol inhaler. It works to deliver a dose of salbutamol directly into the lungs. It comprises of a pressurized canister that is surrounded by a plastic case with a mouthpiece. To administer a dose, the metal canister is pushed down. This releases a measured dose of salbutamol in a fine mist spray.
Using a metered dose inhaler can require a degree of coordination. It is important to get your inhaler technique checked regularly by your doctor or asthma nurse to ensure you are getting the most out of your autohalers.
Dose: Usually one to two puff(s) as needed up to four times daily.
To use Airomir inhaler: First, shake the inhaler before taking a few gentle deep breaths. Place the mouthpiece of the inhaler in your mouth, ensuring you do not block or bite on it with your teeth. Start to breathe in slowly and deeply through the mouthpiece. As you breathe in, simultaneously push down on the metal canister to administer one dose. Continue to breathe in deeply to make sure the medicine gets into your lungs. Next, hold your breath for as long as comfortably possible before gently breathing out. If another dose is required, wait for thirty seconds and then repeat this procedure.
