In brief: Airway constriction
This airway constriction could then result in collapse and even death.
Don't let your inhalers expire and keep them within easy reach.

In brief: ER
If you experience shortness of breath and don't have an inhaler, you would need to get evaluated emergently (ex er, urgent care, etc.
). Shortness of breath is a medical emergency requiring emergent care.
