Exercise-induced bronchospasm: diagnosis and treatment
Bruns AS, Parsons JP

Educational Needs Addressed Exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) occurs commonly in asthmatics and also can affect individuals without asthma. The prevalence of EIB may be underestimated, as patients with asthma have been shown to be poor perceivers of symptoms of bronchospasm. Athletes often have particularly poor awareness of symptoms suggestive of EIB and are not aware that they may have a physical problem. Furthermore, if they do recognize they have a medical problem, many patients, especially athletes, do not want to admit to health care personnel that a problem exists due to fear of social stigma or losing playing time. Health care providers and coaches also may not consider EIB as a possible explanation for respiratory symptoms occurring during exercise. A high index of suspicion for EIB may result in increased recognition of this common problem and improved health and athletic performance. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1.Know the symptoms of exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) 2. State the differential diagnosis of EIB 3. Describe the bronchoprovocation tests used to diagnose EIB 4. Describe the treatment of EIB
