Inhalation Aerosol - エアゾル吸引 -

Dialogue 

Haley:  Did you watch the feature story on TV last night, Sophie? 
Sophie : No. Why, what’s up? 
Haley : Well, it pains me to see 4 to 11-year-old pediatric patients   suffering from mild to moderate asthma.
Sophie : That’s really heartbreaking.  Albuterol inhalation aerosols are usually prescribed for the prevention and treatment of bronchospasm among children.
Haley: Yeah, It’s a fast-acting bronchodilator that quickly opens up the airways in the lungs so that a child can breathe more easily.
Sophie : Were they prescribed any?
Haley : Yes. They were instructed that the usual dosage is 2 inhalations repeated every 4 to 6 hours. More frequent administration is not recommended. 
Sophie : Caregivers are usually instructed to prime the inhalation aerosol by releasing 4 sprays into the air away from the face, also remember to shake well before each spray. This ensures the appropriate albuterol content is administered.
Haley : And the great thing is the dosage counter starts at 204 and counts down each time a spray is released. 
Sophie:  Pediatrics canisters’ counters are really helpful for our clients. I really hope they feel better. 
Haley:    Me too.
