Ventolin is available in two forms via our online doctor service. As an Evohaler, or as an Accuhaler. The Evohaler is a 'press and breathe' inhaler. This means that you need to press down on the inhaler to release the dose, and breathe in as you do so. You can read our full guide on how to use different types of inhalers if you're unsure which type of inhaler you usually use.
The Accuhaler meanwhile, contains salbutamol as micro-powders, which are inhaled into the lungs. This type of inhaler is activated upon breathing, so you don't need to time your breath as you do with a normal inhaler. Accuhalers are often more suited to people who may struggle to use an aerosol inhaler due to a disability or other reasons.
