New practice guidelines from the American Thoracic Society on exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), or acute airway narrowing resulting from exercise appear in the May 1 issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
A multidisciplinary panel of stakeholders has reviewed the pathogenesis of EIB and developed the new evidence-based recommendations, which address diagnosis, management, environmental triggers, and special considerations in elite athletes.
"While a large proportion of asthma patients experience exercise-induced respiratory symptoms, EIB also occurs frequently in subjects without asthma," guidelines committee chair Jonathan Parsons, MD, associate professor of internal medicine and associate director of the Ohio State University Asthma Center in Columbus, said in a news release.
"Given the high prevalence of EIB, evidence-based guidelines for its management are of critical importance," he added.
