No, ProAir is not the same as Atrovent.

ProAir HFA (albuterol) is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs. It produces bronchodilation by relaxing bronchial smooth muscle through beta-2 receptor stimulation.

Albuterol inhalation is used to treat or prevent bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airway disease. Albuterol is also used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm.

Atrovent HFA (Ipratropium) is used to prevent bronchospasm, or narrowing airways in the lungs, in people with bronchitis, emphysema, or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). It is an anticholinergic bronchodilator.
