Kick Asthma: Webinar Series - Exercise-Induced Bronchoconstriction (EIB)

  • Sun, December 01, 2019
  • (UTC-03:00)
  • Webinar

Presentation Objectives:

  • Identify the mechanisms of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction
  • Understand how to diagnose exercise-induced bronchoconstriction.
  • Be familiar with the approach to management of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction.
Presentation Description:

Between 80 and 90 percent of patients with asthma have exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, a narrowing of the airways triggered by exercise. However, many patients will develop bronchoconstriction only during exercise. We will review how exercise leads to a narrowing of the airways and also how to diagnose and manage the disease.
