Author's abstract

Exercise-induced asthma (EIA) can be easily overlooked and underdiagnosed, especially in school children or recreational athletes. It affects individuals of all levels of activity, from recreational sports to competition. This article summarizes the results of the Olympic Exercise Asthma Summit Conference, organized by the Sports Medicine Division of the US Olympic Committee. Making the correct diagnosis of EIA is very important and usually requires some form of pulmonary function testing. Because effective pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment is available for this condition, patients should be followed until the condition is controlled. Verf.-Referat
