About Salbair Transhaler 250 mdi

Salbair Transhaler 250 mdi is used to treat bronchospasm and symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Salbair Transhaler 250 mdi helps to relieve symptoms like coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Bronchospasm is the tightening of the muscles that line the airways or bronchi in the lungs. Asthma is a breathing problem in which airways narrow, swell and produce extra mucus, leading to difficulty breathing. COPD is a group of lung diseases with emphysema (shortness of breath) and chronic bronchitis (inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes).

Salbair Transhaler 250 mdi contains 'Levosalbutamol,' which is also known as levalbuterol. Salbair Transhaler 250 mdi is a bronchodilator that relaxes the muscles in the airways and increases airflow to the lungs. Salbair Transhaler 250 mdi thus makes breathing easier by widening the airways.
