About Salamol Easi-Breathe
Salamol Easi-Breathe is a salbutamol inhaler (blue inhaler/reliever inhaler). It is breath-actuated, meaning the inhaler releases a puff of salbutamol automatically during inspiration (see demonstration video below). A similar breath-actuated salbutamol inhaler is the Airomir Autohaler.
This type of breath actuated inhaler is particularly useful for patients who have difficulty using standard inhalers. Standard inhalers require the user to push down on the end of the inhaler canister at the same time as breathing in. Some people find this co-ordination difficult and benefit from the automatic triggering from a 'breath actuated' inhaler.
In common with other salbutamol inhalers, the Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler is used to relieve the chest tightness of asthma. It is used as required, with one or two puffs taken to relieve symptoms for up to 6 hours.
Ordering inhalers from Dr Fox
Dr Fox supplies one inhaler posted from a UK registered pharmacy. To order, customers read important medical information and then proceed to answering a medical questionnaire. After answering the yes/no consultation questions, eligible patients may order.
Dr Fox services do not remove the need to have regular face-to-face asthma clinic check-ups.
Your GP must be informed about your inhaler usage and any supplies you obtain online. Dr Fox will inform your GP by letter. You will be required to provide GP surgery details when ordering.
Side effects of Salamol Easi-Breathe
The side effects of Salamol Easi-Breathe are the same as other salbutamol inhalers. The most commonly seen side effects tend to occur immediately after inhalers are used and are related to the salbutamol dose (number of puffs), and usually last a few minutes or hours.
The common salbutamol side effects (greater than 1 in 100 people) are feeling tense and getting headaches, feeling shaky and dizziness.
Other side-effects occur less commonly and not always dose related. See the manufacturer's patient information leaflet for Salamol Easi-Breathe.
Patient who experience an increased shortness of breath or chest pain after using a salbutamol inhaler should seek immediate medical advice.
Alternative salbutamol inhalers
Most people who use asthma inhalers are prescribed standard metered aerosol inhalers such as Ventolin Evohaler. For most people this type of inhaler is convenient and less costly.
Whichever type of blue inhaler is used, the active ingredient is the same, salbutamol 100mcg per puff. The dose prescribed is also the same, one or two puffs 4 to 6 hours as required.
Salbutamol inhaler (blue reliever inhaler) treatment
Most people who suffer from asthma and related breathing conditions have intermittent symptoms, although some patients may experience severe and continuous problems. Most people need to use their inhalers only occasionally when their symptoms flare-up. When their symptoms settle or disappear, they may need no treatment at all.
Asthma is usual managed by GPs or specialist asthma nurses and occasionally by specialist hospital chest clinics. Regular asthma clinic reviews are normally carried out at least once a year, and depending on the severity of the breathing problems, sometimes more frequently.
At clinics doctor and nurses review symptoms, inhaler usage and technique, and assess the need to increase or decrease treatment.
If the occasional use of a salbutamol inhaler is insufficient to control symptoms, doctors will usually add a steroid inhaler, which may be used regularly or for periods of a few days or weeks at times when symptoms flare-up. Inhaled steroid inhaler doses can be increased or decreased as required and can, in more severe cases, be supplemented by steroid tablets. Additional management with long acting reliever inhalers or tablets which moderate immune responses may also be required.
