Inhalers are the most beneficial way of immediately reducing the severe symptoms of asthma attacks. Inhalers help with reducing severe breathlessness that makes it difficult for people with the condition to live. Inhalers are the short-term method of providing immediate relief to the asthma-flare up.
Inhalers also called bronchodilators reduce breathlessness to make people feel better and rest for the next step of treatment. A bronchodilator mostly consists of albuterol that is inhaled through the mouth as it provides instant relief to asthma flare-ups.
Asthma inflames and tightens the airway that blocks the oxygen passage to induce an asthma attack. The moment people suffering from an asthma attack use an inhaler, the medication reaches the airway through the mouth. The medication reduces the inflammation and mucus in the airway to reduce the blockage.
As the blockage reduces, people suffering from an asthma attack get more oxygen to breathe in. This reduces the severe breathlessness to provide an immediate relief. However, inhalers are not a permanent solution as another attack can get induced immediately.
