Perfect For Your Asthma

Did you know that asthma affects more than 5 million individuals in the UK alone? Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects your lungs. When you have asthma, the airways in your lungs (e.g. air sacs) become inflamed and narrow. This makes breathing a lot harder.

Symptoms Of Asthma

Symptoms of asthma vary from one person to another. Some of the most common ones include:

  • Wheezing
  • Cough that seems to get worse in the evening
  • Chest pressure, tightness, or pain
  • Shortness of breath

These symptoms can be mild or severe. While some people experience prolonged symptoms, others can also go for months without dealing with any of these.

The sudden worsening of your asthma symptoms is called an asthma attack. During an attack, your lungs produce more mucus and your airways get inflamed. Bronchospasm or the contraction of muscles surrounding your ways makes it harder to breathe. Asthma attacks can be mild or severe. Mild asthma attacks can be managed at home. Severe asthma attacks, on the other hand, is a life-threatening emergency.

Remember that there’s no cure for asthma. The only thing you can do is to manage your asthma symptoms and be aware of your triggers.

What Are The Triggers of Asthma?

What triggers your asthma may not trigger another person’s. Below are the common causes of an asthma attack:

  • smoking
  • exercise
  • weather
  • allergies
  • smoke
  • sinusitis
  • certain food
  • heartburn
  • certain food additives
  • certain medications

How To Use The Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump

You can use the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump as needed. Make sure you shake the inhaler before each puff. The normal dose is 1 or 2 puffs for children and adults. You cannot take salbutamol more than 4 times in a day.

If you need to use the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump more than 4 times in a day, please talk to your doctor or GP. People who need to use this medication more frequently often means that their asthma is getting worse. At this point, your doctor may prescribe a different medication to address your symptoms.

Talk to your doctor as well if you need to use the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump more than 2 days a week or at least once per week in the middle of the night.

Using the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump more than the recommended limit increases your risks of developing side effects like nervousness, increased heart rate, jitteriness, and headaches.

The best time to use the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump is when you first notice your asthma symptoms flaring up. You can also take this medication when you know you are doing certain activities that could trigger an asthma attack such as running, playing sports, etc.

Using The Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump During An Asthma Attack

In the case of an asthma attack, use the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump up to 10 puffs (with a 30-second gap between each puff). Always shake the inhaler before each puff. Your asthma attack should wear off after 10 minutes. Repeat the dose if the symptoms persist.

Inhaler Technique For Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump

The Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump is classified as a pressurized metered-dose inhaler. To get the most out of it, follow this inhaler technique.

Step 1. Priming the inhaler

Before using the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump for the first time (or after a long time), you need to prime it first. Do this by shaking the inhaler and then spraying it into the air. Do this four times.

Priming and shaking the inhaler mixes the salbutamol and propellant in the canister, making sure that you get the right dose of the medication with each puff.

Step 2. Breathing and Inhaling

Take a deep breath before you take the Ventolin Evohaler Asthma Pump. This makes sure that there’s enough space in your airways for your next, medicated, breath. This maximizes the amount of salbutamol that reaches your lungs.

Now that you’re ready, do this:

  1. Put the mouthpiece in your mouth and then close your lips
  2. Press the canister as you breathe
  3. Focus on taking slow deep breaths (deep breaths make sure that you are getting the right amount of the salbutamol into your lungs. Breathing in too fast will cause the medicated propellant to land at the back of your throat, not into your airways where they are needed.)
  4. Hold your breath as long as you can then breathe out normally (holding your breath gives the medication enough time to deposit into your lungs.)
  5. Wait for 30 seconds and then take another puff following the same steps.
