Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Inhaler for asthma. Young woman using an aerosol inhaler for the treatment of bronchial asthma. The inhaler is being held away from the mouth to demonstrate the fine "mist" made by the aerosol drug when the inhaler is fired. For effective treatment the inhaler should be placed within the mouth. Inhalers contain bronchodilator drugs (which widen airways) and/or steroid drugs (which reduce inflammation). Asthma is characterized by recurrent attacks of breathlessness which may be accompanied by wheezing or a dry cough. In severe attacks, breathing becomes increasingly laboured, causing rapid heartbeat, sweating and anxiety.
