      The red asthma inhaler, also known as a rescue or reliever inhaler, is typically used to treat asthma symptoms quickly during an asthma attack. It contains a medication called a short-acting beta agonist (SABA), such as albuterol or salbutamol. When inhaled, these medications quickly relax the muscles around the airways in the lungs, making it easier to breathe. This rapid relief of symptoms can help prevent or alleviate coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath associated with asthma exacerbations. It’s important to note that while the red inhaler provides quick relief, it does not address the underlying inflammation in the airways that causes asthma, so it’s often used in conjunction with other long-term controller medications for asthma management.
