Wheezing is a high-pitched whistling sound made while you breathe. It's heard most clearly when you exhale, but in severe cases it can be heard when you inhale. It's caused by narrowed airways or inflammation.
If you are experiencing wheezing when you're breathing then this is the time to use your albuterol inhaler.
Albuterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs. It is used to ease breathing in people with asthma and other respiratory conditions.
