Airomir Autohaler contains salbutamol sulfate. It is designed so the medicine can be inhaled (breathed in) into the lungs to treat asthma and other conditions where breathing is difficult. Salbutamol sulfate opens up the airways to your lungs, thereby relieving wheezing and the feeling of tightness in your chest, and helps you breathe more easily. Airomir Autohaler and Airomir Inhaler are therefore known as a RELIEVER medicine.
Your medicine may also help prevent wheezing and chest tightness in some situations that cause narrowing of the airways to your lungs, like exercise. That's why your doctor or pharmacist may advise you to take one or two puffs of Airomir Autohaler or Airomir Inhaler before exercise.
If your Airomir Autohaler is new or has not been used for two weeks or more, you must test fire it by releasing four puffs into the air away from your face.
- REMOVE COVER AND SHAKE
Remove the mouthpiece cover by unclipping it from the back.
Check that the mouthpiece is clean before use.
Hold the autohaler unit upright between your thumb and index finger and shake well.
- HOLD UPRIGHT AND PUSH LEVER UP
Hold the autohaler unit upright.
Push the lever up so that it stays up. Keep holding the autohaler unit upright, making sure that your hand is not blocking the air vent at the bottom.
- BREATHE OUT AND POSITION MOUTHPIECE.
Breathe out as far as you comfortably can and immediately close your lips around the mouthpiece.
- BREATHE IN
slowly and deeply through the mouthpiece.
Do not stop breathing in when you hear the click and whoosh and feel the puff in your mouth. It is important that you keep breathing in after the puff is released
- HOLD YOUR BREATH
for 10 seconds, then breathe out slowly.
- PUSH LEVER DOWN
After each puff return the lever to the down position whilst holding the autohaler unit upright.
If your doctor has prescribed more than one puff, repeat steps 2 to 6. Replace the mouthpiece cover after use.
Remember to push the lever up before each puff, and gently back down afterwards, always holding the autohaler upright. This prepares the autohaler for your next dose. The lever should be left down between treatments and the mouthpiece cover replaced to keep your Airomir Autohaler clean.
Administer as instructed by your doctor. The usual dose is one or two puffs to relieve wheezing, or before exercise.
