Asthma is made up of two components; inflammation and bronchoconstriction.

1

Your maintenance medication treats the inflammation in the lungs and needs to be taken everyday.

2

Your rescue medication relieves bronchoconstriction and quickly opens up the lungs.

3

It is very important to have good device technique to ensure the medications are getting into the lungs properly.

4

Rescue medication or ventolin can indicate whether your asthma is well controlled. If you are taking more than 4 puffs of ventolin per week, your asthma may not be properly controlled.

5
