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?

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