Salbutamol is a relatively selective ?2 adrenoreceptor stimulant. It is more specific than both isoprenaline and orciprenaline for adrenergic ?2 receptors. Salbutamol is a sympathomimetic agent which has a highly selective action on ? adrenergic receptors in bronchial muscle. It provides short acting (4 to 6 hour) bronchodilation with fast onset (within 5 minutes) in reversible airway obstruction. ?2 adrenoceptor agonist is used in the treatment of asthma and other forms of diffuse reversible airways obstruction.
