Short-acting beta2-agonists (SABA) are a type of bronchodilators. These are the most common immediate-relief drugs for treating asthma attacks and to manage both acute and stable exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Salbutamol is the most commonly prescribed short-acting beta2-agonists (SABA) and is available under different brand names such as Salamol, Ventolin, and Proventil. The usage of short-acting beta-2-agonists SABAs on a regular basis for at least seven days in stable COPD is associated with the decrease in breathlessness and improvement in post bronchodilator lung function within 5 minutes. The inhaled form of the drug is available in metered-dose inhalers and as a liquid for compressor-driven nebulizers. Short-acting beta2-agonists (SABA) are utilized to treat symptoms in intermittent asthma, prevent asthma symptoms before exercise, and provide quick relief of symptoms during asthma attacks. A combination of ipratropium and short-acting beta2-agonists (SABA) in severe, acute asthma episodes results in improved lung function and fewer hospital visits.
