The sufferer experiences paroxysmal attacks of bronchospasm (a narrowing of the bronchi by muscular contraction) which result in wheezing and general breathing difficulties. The inhaler effects a rapid relief from these symptoms. It's aerosol mechanism administers a measured dose of a bronchodilator, an agent that widens the air passages.
