Asthma facts and information

Asthma is a condition that makes it hard to breathe. Asthma makes people’s airways—those tubes that bring air into your lungs—tighten and become narrow. People who have asthma may1:

  • Wheeze
  • Be short of breath
  • Feel that their chest is tight
  • Have an ongoing cough

Asthma and your airways

People with asthma have airways that are irritated and sensitive to asthma triggers. This can lead to an asthma attack (sometimes called an exacerbation). During an asthma attack, your airways can become narrow or get closed off.1

The ProAir® RespiClick (albuterol sulfate) Inhalation Powder rescue inhaler is indicated for the treatment of asthma in patients 12 years of age and older. ProAir® RespiClick works by delivering medicine that helps relax the muscles around the airways.

ProAir® RespiClick prepares your medicine with a CLICK, then waits for you to breathe it in…so you can get the medicine into your lungs when you need it most. See how the ProAir®  RespiClick inhaler is ready when you are.
