What is Airomir inhaler?

Airomir is a reliever inhaler licensed by Teva to provide fast relief from symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Similarly to Ventolin, Airomir is a reliever inhaler which contains salbutamol.

During an asthma attack, the muscles surrounding the airways constrict, making it difficult to breathe.

There are a number of factors which can trigger a bronchial spasm including:

  • Acid reflux
  • Allergens
  • Cigarette smoke (including second-hand smoke)
  • Cosmetics and perfumes
  • Exercise
  • Food
  • Infections such as the common cold, influenza and pneumonia
  • Laughing or crying
  • Medicines (aspirin, NSAIDs and beta-blockers)
  • Pollution
  • Stress
  • Toxins
  • Weather

It is believed that 1 in 12 adults suffer from asthma in the UK, making it one of the most prevalent conditions in Europe.

How does Airomir work?

Airomir contains a bronchodilator called salbutamol. This agent works by opening (dilating) the airways (bronchi and bronchioles) which make it easier to breathe.


How do I use my Airomir inhaler?

There are two kinds of Airomir inhaler:

  • Airomir aerosol inhaler
  • Airomir Autohaler

To use the aerosol inhaler:

  1. Shake the inhaler before you use it and remove the cap from the mouthpiece.
  2. Sit or stand up straight with your chin slightly raised and breathe out until your lungs are empty.
  3. Put the mouthpiece of the inhaler between your teeth but don't bite it. Cloud your lips around the mouthpiece to create an airtight seal.
  4. Begin to slowly breathe in through the inhaler and depress the canister to administer a dose.
  5. Continue to slowly breathe in through the inhaler until your lungs feel full.
  6. Remove the inhaler from your mouth and old your breath for 10 seconds, or as long as you can comfortably hold it for.
  7. Slowly breathe out through your mouth.

To use the Autohaler: 

  1. Flip up the tab at the top of the inhaler, put the inhaler in your mouth and breathe in.
  2. For the best results, start by standing or sitting in an upright position.
  3. Shake the inhaler before you use it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Hold your breath for 10 seconds before breathing out in a slow and controlled manner.
  7. 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.

Using Airomir with a spacer (Aerochamber)

Spacers are devices which aid the use of aerosol inhalers. Using a spacer means that you don't need to time your breath with the pressing of the inhaler canister.

Your doctor or asthma nurse can discuss whether you would benefit from using a spacer and can show you how to use them.

Airomir may be used with small volume spacers, such as an Aerochamber, but is incompatible with large volume spacers such as the Volumatic. Additionally, you cannot use a spacer with a dry inhaler.

1. Firstly, you need to shake the inhaler.

2. Next, remove the cap from the mouthpiece of the Airomir inhaler and push the mouth piece into the end of the spacer. Ensure a tight seal between the mouthpiece of the inhaler and the spacer you are using.

3. Place the mouthpiece of the spacer between your teeth but don't bite it. Close your mouth around the mouthpiece of the spacer to ensure a tight seal.

4. Sit or stand up straight and raise your chin slightly. This will help the medicine reach your lung.

5. Depress the canister of the inhaler to administer the dose into the spacer.

6. Your doctor will advise you on which technique to use in order to inhale the medicine. If you are unsure which method to use, ask your doctor or asthma nurse.

6a. If your doctor has suggested using the tidal or multiple-breath technique, breathe in and out steadily through the spacer 5 times.

6b. If your doctor has suggested the single breath and hold, take one deep single breath in through the spacer until your lungs feel full. Hold your breath for 10 seconds, or as long as feels comfortable.

7. Once you have administered the dose(s), remove the mouthpiece from your mouth.
