What is Ventolin?
Ventolin is an anti-asthmatic drug that is used to treat various diseases of the bronchi and lungs, accompanied by spasm of the smooth muscles of the bronchi. This drug, which is a clear liquid (sometimes it may be light yellow in color), is used only for inhalation administration.
Its composition includes: the active substance - Salbutamol, which suppresses the reactivity of the bronchi and helps to eliminate or prevent the appearance of bronchospasm; auxiliary substances - contribute to a more convenient administration of salbutamol and its uniform distribution during administration.
When Ventolin is injected into the respiratory tract, salbutamol affects the smooth muscles of the bronchi, ensuring their complete relaxation, reducing the resistance of the respiratory tract and increasing the amount of inhaled air. In addition, the active component of Ventolin is able to stimulate the secretion of bronchial glands and activate the work of the atrial epithelium of the bronchi, which ensures the excretion of mucus during coughing. Salbutamol in therapeutic doses can cause palpitations and a decrease in blood pressure. The breakdown products of salbutamol are excreted from the body with urine and, partially, with feces.
Instructions for the use of Ventolin
- Bronchial asthma: for the relief of seizures; for the prevention of seizures; for the treatment of asthma with exacerbation.
- Chronic bronchitis.
- Acute obstructive bronchitis.
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with reversible obstruction.
Contraindications: Hypersensitivity to any of the components of the drug and age up to 2 years; the threat of miscarriage or premature birth.
Ventolin is prescribed with caution when:
- Heart defects; myocarditis;
- Aortic stenosis;
- Arterial hypertension;
- Thyrotoxicosis; glaucoma;
- Diabetes mellitus in the decompensation stage;
- Renal or hepatic insufficiency;
- Pregnancy and lactation.
In rare cases, Ventolin can also be used for the treatment of pregnant and nursing mothers, but only in cases where the expected effect on a woman's life exceeds the risk of developing pathologies in the fetus or child. This precaution is explained by the fact that during the tests, cases of detection of such fetal pathologies as "cleft palate" and congenital deformities of the limbs were recorded. A reliable cause-and-effect relationship between taking Ventolin and fetal deformities was not established, because the mothers also took other medications. There is no reliable data on the possible negative effect of salbutamol probably present in breast milk on a newborn baby. That is why Ventolin is prescribed to pregnant and lactating women only in exceptional cases.
- Skeletal muscle tremors;
- Dizziness or headache;
- Tachycardia. Infrequent: palpitations;
- Muscle spasm;
- Irritation of the mucous membrane of the mouth and pharynx.

Ventolin Treatment - How to take Ventolin?
Special devices – nebulizers are used to use Ventolin. The inhalation solution is prepared from the prescribed amount of Ventolin solution, which is supplemented with sterile saline solution up to a volume of 2-2.5 ml. The resulting solution is inhaled by the patient through a nebulizer until the aerosol formation stops. As a rule, the duration of inhalation is about 10 minutes. In some cases, to achieve a faster effect, an undiluted solution of Ventolin is used, which is placed in a nebulizer in the dosage prescribed by the doctor. In such cases, inhalation lasts about 3-5 minutes. During the procedure, the room should be well ventilated; the patient should be under the direct supervision of a doctor.
To use Ventolin aerosol at the first application or if the drug has not been used for a week or more, it is necessary to remove the safety cap from the cylinder, slightly squeezing its edges from the sides. The balloon needs to be shaken and the inhaler valve pressed in order to make sure that the aerosol mechanism is working properly. After installing the mouthpiece, the inhaler must be shaken again and the balloon placed in the hand as follows: the bottom of the balloon should be directed upwards, the thumb should be placed on the base under the mouthpiece, and the index finger should hold the inhaler in the bottom area. The patient should take a deep and slow exhalation, wrap his lips around the end of the mouthpiece (without grabbing it with his teeth). Next, you need to inhale deeply through your mouth and simultaneously press your index finger on the bottom of the inhaler. After administration of one dose of Ventolin, you need to hold your breath for a few seconds and slowly exhale. The next dose can be administered in the same way after 30 seconds. After that, the mouthpiece can be closed with a cap.
When inhaled with Ventolin, the patient should not make hasty movements. In the first days of using the aerosol, you can practice in front of a mirror: if traces of the escaping aerosol are visible in the area of the corners of the mouth or the upper part of the inhaler, then the administration of the dose of the drug must be started anew.
To clean the mouthpiece, which should be carried out once every 6-7 days, you can use running warm water.
- Before washing, it is necessary to remove the cylinder from the plastic housing and remove the mouthpiece cover.
- Wash the body and mouthpiece under a stream of warm water, preventing overheating.
- Dry the parts, insert the balloon into the plastic case and put the mouthpiece cover on it.
- The can can not be immersed in water.
Ventolin inhalation solution can be used in diluted or undiluted form. The dosage and method of administration is determined by the doctor depending on the patient's health and age.
Adults and children over 12 years of age: in diluted form - 0.5-1.0 ml (2.5-5.0 mg of Ventolin) is mixed with sterile saline solution, bringing the volume to 2.0-2.5 ml. The solution is placed in a nebulizer and inhalation is carried out until evaporation disappears (about 10 minutes). undiluted - 2.0 ml (10 mg of Ventolin) is placed in a nebulizer and inhalation is carried out (about 3-5 minutes).
Children 18 months-12 years: in diluted form - 0.5 ml (2.5 mg of Ventolin) is brought with sterile saline solution to a volume of 2.0-2.5 ml, the resulting solution is placed in a nebulizer and inhalation is performed. in severe cases, the dose is increased to 1.0 ml (5.0 mg of Ventolin), the drug is diluted with sterile saline solution to a volume of 100 ml and inhalation is performed using an aerosol or nebulizer at a rate of 1-2 mg / hour. The number of inhalations is determined by the doctor. If necessary, repeated inhalation can be carried out after 20 minutes. It is not recommended to administer Ventolin more than 4 times a day.
Aerosol Adults: with an acute attack of bronchospasm - 100-200 micrograms (1-2 injections); prevention of an acute attack of bronchospasm with physical exertion or exposure to an allergen - 200 micrograms (2 injections) 10 -15 minutes before exposure to an attack-provoking factor; maintenance therapy prescribed for a long period of time - 200 micrograms (2 injections) up to 4 times per day.
Children from 18 months to 2 years: with an acute attack of bronchospasm - 100 micrograms (1 injection); prevention of an attack of bronchospasm - 100 micrograms (1 injection) 10-15 minutes before exposure to an attack-provoking factor; maintenance therapy prescribed for a long period of time - 100 micrograms (1 injection) up to 4 times a day.
The use of additional spacer devices can increase the efficiency of using Ventolin. Spacers are recommended for inhalation and for those patients who find it difficult to coordinate their actions when using an aerosol.
Ventolin for children
Ventolin can be used for the treatment and prevention of bronchospasm in children starting from the age of 2. As a rule, it can be prescribed even at 18 months. At an earlier age, Ventolin is used in rare cases, because the possible negative effect of the drug on the body of a child younger than 18 months has not yet been sufficiently studied.
Most often, Ventolin in pediatric practice is prescribed for a short period of time. This takes into account the age of the child, the severity of bronchospasm, the presence of concomitant diseases, taking other medications and the risk of possible side effects.
To increase the effectiveness of the drug or if it is impossible to use Ventolin aerosol, the administration of salbutamol with a nebulizer or the use of an aerosol through a spacer may be recommended. The dosage of salbutamol, the frequency and nature of administration, the duration of use – all these parameters are set by the doctor individually for each child.
Reviews of the drug
Ventolin, according to patient reviews, is well tolerated and very effective in the treatment of bronchospasm. With proper use of the drug, side effects are rarely noted. Only a small part of the reviews mentioned the occurrence of side effects such as: trembling of skeletal muscles, headache or tachycardia. Patients speak of the price of Ventolin as "affordable" and "not high".
