DESCRIPTION

ProAir HFA (Salbutamol) is a quick relief drug which is used to prevent and treat wheezing and shortness of breath caused by breathing problems (such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). It is also used to prevent asthma brought on by exercise. Albuterol belongs to a class of drugs known as bronchodilators and works in the airways by opening breathing passages and relaxing muscles. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school. When used, a Salbutamol inhaler can help alleviate such symptoms as shortness of breath, trouble breathing, wheezing, cough, and chest tightness as well as several other reactions associated with the onset of asthma.

The effectiveness of Salbutamol has been tested and proved in numerous studies and research projects. It is estimated to be effective in at least 54% cases for patients with mild or moderate symptoms of asthma, temporarily alleviating at least 80% of all documented adverse effects. The time needed for Salbutamol to take effect is only 10 to 15 seconds after an inhalation, delivering its full spectrum of benefits over the next few minutes.

Salbutamol provides a lasting preventive "barrier" for recurrent symptoms, making them virtually non-existent for the next 4 hours. This trait makes it useful as a preventer for sports-induced asthma.

Although Salbutamol is not a cure for asthma, it has taken its rightful place as the cornerstone of any form of treatment for this disease. Every single patient diagnosed with asthma is always prescribed with a quick acting rescue inhaler to hold on to in case of emergency. After all, it is better to have one and not need it, than ignore it and regret later.
