Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Inhaler for asthma. Ten year old boy using an inhaler to treat bronchial asthma. Inhalers such as this contain bronchodilator drugs (which widen the airways) and/or steroid drugs (which reduce inflammation). This inhaler does not use CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), chemicals used as propellants in some aerosols which can damage the environment. Asthma is characterised by recurrent attacks of breathlessness which vary in severity. It may be accompanied by wheezing or a dry cough. In a severe attack, breathing becomes increasingly laboured, causing rapid heartbeat, sweating and anxiety. This illness often starts in childhood and tends to improve in early adulthood.
