What is Salbutamol?

Salbutamol (INN) or albuterol (USAN) is used to treat bronchospasms (wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath) associated with lung-related problems such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and other lung-related problems such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

It works by relaxing the muscles and air passages in the lungs so that air can flow into them more freely and improve breathing.

This medicine is also useful for the prevention of exercise-induced bronchospasm, as well as indicated in hyperkalemia, especially in patients with renal failure.

Salbutamol is sold worldwide under several brand names, including Airomir, Asthalin, Asmol, Buventol, Proventil, Salamol, Sultanol, Ventolin and Volmax.
