How Ventolin Works
In normal conditions air gets in and out of our lungs through the airway networks without any problem. When an asthma attack occurs the airways start to tighten, and it becomes harder to breath. This situation is known as bronchospasm. Ventolin belongs to the drug class known as beta-adrenergic receptor agonists (beta agonists). Beta agonists have the role to stimulate the beta receptors from our body, and it also stimulates the muscles found around airways. Due to the stimulation, all the muscles relax and the airways are opened allowing air to move in the lungs easier.
Ventolin And Its Benefits: Unfortunately, asthma cannot be cured it can be only controlled. At present, there is a large variety of asthma treatments available on the present market. Ventolin counts among these treatments, and it is considered one of the best. It is considered a "rescue" inhaler for asthma because it can improve immediately breathing. People who suffer from asthma must always keep a rescue medication at hand in case that an asthma attack occurs. Ventolin can treat asthma but in the same time it can prevent any asthma attacks. Taking into account that this medicine is short acting, the patient doesn't need the best medication to prevent asthma attacks. Ventolin is a great drug that can always prevent asthma attacks induced by exercises or for treating the asthma attacks. Asthma appears not only due to bronchospasms. Ventolin can treat bronchospasms provoked by other lung problems as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases.
