Salbutamol Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionSalbutamol is a short-acting, selective β2-adrenergic receptor agonist. Like other β2-adrenergic receptor drugs that are breathed in through the mouth, salbutamol can relax the muscles in the lung and open the bronchial tubes to relieve breathing difficulty. They relieve cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, and troubled breathing by increasing the flow of air through the bronchial tubes.
    Salbutamol is generally used to treat or prevent bronchospasm caused by bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis, and other chronic bronchopulmonary disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). It is also used prevent wheezing caused by exercise (exercise induced bronchospasm).
    It is marketed as Airomir®; AirSalb®; Asmasal Clickhaler®; Asmavent®; Easyhaler® Salbutamol; Pulvinal® Salbutamol; Salamol®; Salbulin®; Ventolin®.
