Asthma inhaler with an aerochamber spacer attached. The attached brown pump dispenses 100 micrograms of the corticosteroid drug beclometasone dipropionate (previously beclomethasone dipropionate) per dose as a prophylactic to decrease inflammation in the lungs. The blue pump dispenses 100 micrograms of the bronchodilator drug salbutamol (salbutamol sulphate BP) per dose to relieve the symptoms of asthma. Asthma causes breathing difficulties due to contraction of the airways in the lungs. The drug widens these airways, allowing rapid relief from wheezing and breathlessness. Both pumps uses a non-CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) propellant.
