Ventolin is used to treat asthma and contains salbutamol, a medicine which belongs to a group called fast-acting bronchodilators. Bronchodilators help the airways in your lungs to stay open, making it easier for air to get in and out. They help to relieve chest tightness, wheezing and coughing.
Asthma is caused by an inflammation of the small tubes, bronchi, which carry the air in and out of your lungs. If you are suffering from asthma, these bronchi are more inflamed and sensitive than normal.
When you come into contact with something which irritates the lungs, your airways narrow and the muscles around them tighten, plus there is an increase in sticky mucus – making it hard to breath normally.
