VANQUISH ACUTE ASTHMA
WITH THE LATEST INNOVATION
IN RESPIRATORY CARE
Synchrobreathe, a state of the art respiratory inhaler developed by Cipla, promises to effectively track patient doses, eliminate coordination challenges, and relieve millions of their Asthma with its breath-actuated technology.
TAKE A LOOK AT HOW ASTHMA TREATMENT HAS EVOLVED FROM 1860 TO 2017:
1860
ATROPINE WAS ISOLATED AND BECAME READILY AVAILABLE TO INHALE VIA PIPES OR CIGARS.
1860
1860
By 1860, respiratory treatments included smoking stramonium, lobelia, belladonna, inhaling ether, chloroform, or potassium nitrate fumes. Some doctors recommended random products and practices such as bleeding, vomiting, emetics, and coffee which hardly afforded patient relief.
1860
1910
IMMEDIATE RELIEF FOR THE EFFECTS OF ASTHMA ATTACKS WERE TREATED WITH EPINEPHRINE, USED IN NEBULIZERS.
1910
These large, glass nebulizers had to be inhaled by squeezing a rubber bulb.
1955
POCKET INHALERS PROVIDING INSTANT RELIEF TO PATIENTS WERE DEVELOPED WITH EPINEPHRINE AND ISOETHARINE.
1955
1955
Theopylline, a pill that improved breathing when taken four times a day, also became popular among asthma patients.
1955
1970
TERBUTALINE, A RESCUE MEDICINE LASTING UP TO 6 HOURS, WAS INTRODUCED TO THE MARKET.
1970
This later became available as an inhaler called Brethine, Bricanyl, and Brethaire.
1982
ALBUTEROL, AN ASTHMA MEDICINE ALLOWING PATIENTS TO BREATHE IMMEDIATELY AFTER AN ASTHMA ATTACK WITH HARDLY ANY SIDE EFFECTS.
1982
1982
This was approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Initially only available as a solution, Albuterol inhalers were soon developed and continues to be the rescue medicine of choice.
1982
1989
FOCUS CHANGED FROM TREATING THE SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA TO PREVENTING IT.
1989
Chronic Asthma was treated with leading medicines such as Beclomethasone, Triamcinolone and Flunisolide.
1994
SALMETEROL (SEREVENT) WAS INTRODUCED TO THE MARKET AS ANOTHER TREATMENT.
1994
1994
Salmeterol (Serevent), a beta adrenergic treatment option that keeps the lungs open for up to 12 hours if taken twice a day, became available to prevent asthma symptoms.
1994
1998
A MEDICINE CONTAINING BETA ADRENERGIC AND AN INHALED CORTICOSTEROID BECAME THE TOP ASTHMA PREVENTION MEDICINE.
1998
This was effective in reducing inhaler use.
1999
LEVALBUTEROL WAS ANOTHER RESCUE MEDICINE AVAILABLE TO PATIENTS.
1999
1999
Levalbuterol which some said was stronger than Albuterol (with fewer side effects, and at a higher price), became available as another rescue medicine.
