Airomir is an inhaler licensed by Teva to provide fast relief from symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
During a bronchial spasm, the muscles surrounding the airways constrict, making it difficult to breathe.
There are a number of factors which can trigger a bronchial spasm including:
It is believed that 1 in 12 adults suffer from asthma in the UK, making it one of the most prevalent conditions in Europe.
Airomir contains a bronchodilator called salbutamol. This agent works by opening (dilating) the airways (bronchi and bronchioles) which make it easier to breathe.
There are two kinds of Airomir inhaler:
To use the aerosol inhaler, you need to push down on the canister while simultaneously breathing in. If you have trouble pushing down the canister while breathing in, you want to use the autohaler variant or speak to your doctor or asthma nurse about using a spacer.
To use the Autohaler, flip up the tab at the top of the inhaler, put the inhaler in your mouth and breathe in.
For the best results, start by standing or sitting in an upright position.
Shake the inhaler before you use it.
Exhale deeply through your mouth and place the inhaler into your mouth with the canister pointing up. Tighten your lips around the mouthpiece to ensure an airtight seal. Avoid biting down on the inhaler mouthpiece.
Press the canister down and breathe in deeply at the same time. Your timing is important. Spraying the medicine into your mouth without inhaling will reduce its efficacy.
Hold your breath for 10 seconds before breathing out in a slow and controlled manner.
Repeat the steps for every dosage you administer.
After using your inhaler, you may want to rinse your mouth with some water.
Directions on how to clean your inhaler can be found in the patient information leaflet.
All medicine carries the risk of side effects, though not everyone gets them. Understanding the risks associated with your medicine and knowing what to look out for are important.

It could be possible that your inhaler is blocked. Try cleaning the inhaler by following the instructions found within the patient information leaflet.

Airomir and Ventolin contain the same active ingredient - salbutamol.
Ventolin is marketed by GlaxoSmithKline while Airomir is marketed by Teva.
Ventolin is not available in an autohaler or similar autonomous inhaler.
For more information on the variants of salbutamol inhalers, speak to your doctor, asthma nurse or a pharmacist.
