exercise-induced asthma

(redirected from exercise induced asthma)

exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB),

bronchospasm precipitated by physical exertion.

exercise-induced asthma

A condition in which intense physical exertion results in acute airway narrowing in individuals with airway hyperreactivity.
 
Clinical findings
Cough, wheezing, dyspnoea, cough, chest tightness, hyperinflation, airflow limitation and hypoxia.
 
Pathogenesis
EIA is closely linked to thermal provocation, which occurs when large volumes of cold air are “conditioned” (heated and humidified), a scenario most common in winter. The limit of airflow is most intense with running, less so with jogging and least with walking; the obstruction is greatest with cold, dry air, and least with warm, humid air.

We suspect that actual prevalence in Bareilly could be even higher as we also had the limitations of questionnaire based surveys including underreporting due social stigma attached with asthma and poor perception of symptoms and also the exercise induced asthma and mild episodic cases where symptoms may not be present and physical examinations, PEFR and spirometry may be normal.

Exercise induced asthma (EIA) is a temporary increase in airway resistance after intensive sport and the airway obstruction can objectively be measured as a decline in Forced Expiratory Volume in One Second ([FEV.sub.1]).
Typically, people with exercise induced asthma will only have symptoms while undertaking a particular exercise - but not necessarily every time.
