acting on receptors in the lungs called beta 2 receptors. Stimulation of these receptors causes the muscles in the airways to relax, allowing the airways to open. Ipratropium bromide is a type of medicine known as an antimuscarinic bronchodilator. It works by blocking different types of receptors, called muscarinic receptors, which are found on the muscle surrounding the airways in the lungs. Stimulation of these receptors by a natural chemical called acetylcholine normally causes the muscle in the airways to contract,
