- Ventolin inhaler is intended for short-term treatment

Ventolin inhaler is intended for short-term treatmentVentolin inhalers contain albuterol, which is a bronchodilator that increases airflow to the lungs by relaxing muscles around the airways. This medicine is used for preventing bronchospasm caused by physical exercise; it can also be used by people with reversible obstructive airway disease. Because Ventolin inhaler is intended for short-term treatment and prevention purposes, it’s important to carry it around all the time, especially if you intend to work out (in case you need this medicine for exercise-induced bronchospasm). Before using the medicine for the first time, it’s always a good idea to see a medical professional and discuss any chronic conditions you have, especially diabetes, heart disease, a seizure disorder, high blood pressure or an overactive thyroid.
After you buy Ventolin inhaler, you need to prime it first. This is done by spraying several test sprays into the air. An inhaler also has to be primed if you have not used it for over 2 weeks. To use the medicine in the inhaler, make sure you shake the canister well, then uncap the mouthpiece and breathe out fully. Then put the mouthpiece in your mouth closing your lips around it. While pushing down on the canister, breathe in and then hold your breath for about 10 seconds. You may need more than one inhalation at a time, but only if prescribed so by your doctor. The mouthpiece should be cleaned at least one a week: you can clean it by placing it under warm running water for about a minute.
