Asthma Inhaler while Fasting

Q: Is it permissible for an asthma patient to use an inhaler (pump) whilst fasting? The inhaler contains salbutamol (liquid medication). Will Qadha and Kaffarah become Waajib or only Qadha?

Using the pump whilst fasting will break the fast since it contains medication. Only Qadha will be Waajib.
