How does Asthalin Inhaler (Salbutamol Pressurised Inhalation) work?

Asthalin Inhaler (Salbutamol Pressurised Inhalation) contains salbutamol, a beta 2-agonist and bronchodilator that acts directly on the small airways of the lungs (bronchioles). Contraction of the bands of smooth muscle that surrounds the small bronchiole tubes causes narrowing of the airways in response to an asthma trigger. Salbutamol in Asthalin Inhaler (Salbutamol Pressurised Inhalation) binds to beta 2 receptors on the smooth muscle causing the muscle to relax and the airways to widen (bronchodilation). This reduces bronchospasm (contraction or the airways) and allows the airways to open making it easier to breathe and removing symptoms of asthma, such as tightness of the chest, wheezing, cough and shortness of breath. Salbutamol in Asthalin Inhaler (Salbutamol Pressurised Inhalation) is a rapid-acting bronchodilator but has a short duration of action, lasting 4-6 hours and is used as a reliever medication for severe asthma, delivered into the lungs as an aerosol with each actuation (puff).
