Asthma is usually easy to control, especially with regular use of oral or inhaled long-acting medications. However, for an asthmatic, there is always the chance of an environmentally triggered bronchospasm, or asthma attack. Asthma attacks are characterized by a sudden seizing of the muscle bands around the lungs and inside the airways, which results in the sufferer being unable to breathe. Asthmatics should always carry a fast acting inhaler with them. Here are some examples of popular fast acting inhalers and how they work.

Proventil – Proventil is currently the number one fast-acting asthma inhaler in the United States. Proventil’s, medicinal ingredient, albuterol, is a bronchodilator. It works to significantly reduce the symptoms of bronchospasms by relaxing the muscles around the airways. This allows the patient to breathe smoothly.

Atrovent - Atrovent is a fast-acting inhaler. Ipratropium bromide, the medicinal ingredient in Atrovent, is a cholinergic medication. It works by opening the airways and relaxing the muscles around them to help the patient quickly breathe better.
