Ventolin is employed for treating or preventing breathing problems in patients that have asthma or certain other airway diseases. It could be employed to prevent breathing problems brought on by exercise. Ventolin can be a sympathomimetic (beta agonist) bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the graceful muscle inside the airway, that allows air to flow in and out from the lungs easier.
