This groundbreaking reference presents the latest advances in the study of exercise as a precipitant of acute airflow limitation-comprehensively updating the theories, testing methodologies, clinical features, and treatment options for exercise-induced asthma (EIA). Written by leading researchers in pulmonary disease and critical care medicine, Exercise-Induced Asthma discusses current theories on pathogenesis, emphasizing new data on the relationship between vascular phenomena and bronchoconstriction explores respiratory thermal transfer and water vaporization as factors in controlling or triggering the asthma reaction sequence evaluates the efficacy and potential interactions of pharmacologic compounds such as 2-adrenergic agonists, cromolyn sodium, histamine receptor-1 antagonists, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), heparin, and others contrasts pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management schemes, emphasizing the role of climate and type, intensity, and duration of exercise reviews exercise testing as a method of diagnosing airway hyperreactivity details the effects of pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, ozone, and particulate matter on the asthmatic diathesis compares natural salutory mechanisms such as release of inhibitory prostaglandins with use of medications such as 2-agonist bronchodilators and more!
