Symptoms of asthma can appear right away or several hours after exposure to certain triggers including pollen, pollution, pet fur or workplace chemicals though each person will have different triggers. As such, having an asthma management plan in place will assist you in preventing asthmatic attacks or support you in the case of an attack occurring. One of the first lines in defence against asthma is a reliever inhaler such as Ventolin which is is a bronchodilator designed to relax the muscles in the airways and in turn, increase the amount of air flowing to the lungs with each breath.
