"As with any asthma, the best treatment is avoidance, when possible, of conditions predisposing to attacks."[edit]

I take issue with the above statement, which is likely to lead many parents to disallow their children from exercising. Trigger avoidance is less applicable to exercise than to say, dust mites. An objective of asthma control in children is to restore ability to participate in exercise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:54, 15 April 2011 (UTC)


I don't get the point of the last edit, and will alter or delete it if not explicated.Sfahey 16:52, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

at dusk?[edit]

I understand the "slow" traffic and the "uphill" walk, but why "dusk"? Sfahey 03:27, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

At dusk the air gets colder and it relative humidity increases often forming mist or fog. Alec - U.K. 16:35, 22 November 2006 (UTC)


Propose - Move to 'Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction' from 'Exercise-induced asthma'. There is a chapter on Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction under 'Bronchoconstriction' and it says that "Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction" is the same as "Exercise-induced asthma" Alec - U.K. 16:35, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

"Exercise induced asthma" is the more common name given in both British and American medical literature. "Exercise induced bronchoconstriction" is usually mentioned as an aside. Perhaps it is common in other English-speaking countries. I would refer you to peer-reviewed published articles on AAFP, AMA, CDC and other sites for review. example:

Traffic is irritant rather allergen?[edit]

Isn't the implication that the fumes from traffic are allergenic inaccurate? Wouldn't a better example of EIA combined with allergy be, for instance, walking during tree pollen season? Aleta 20:57, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Refractory Period?[edit]

Is there any evidence? [OR comment follows] I've had asthma (allergy-triggered as well as exercise-triggered) all my life, I've been hospitalized several times due to the combination, I've sometimes timed the onset, worsening, lessening, etc. of my symptoms, and I've never had this refractory period. Jacob Haller 07:35, 6 April 2007 (UTC) outlines the timing of exercise, medication and the refractory period. This has been documented and advised in other peer-reviewed studies.

How are exceptional cases evidence of the usual prognosis?[edit]

That some people with EIA are successful athletes hardly establishes that most people with EIA are not struggling and are not facing difficulties in day-to-day life. (talk) 19:24, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Yeah. I'm an athlete yet I have EIA. It's probably true that most people don't have daily struggles because of it. It just means you need to be careful when exersizing for many Rachelm10 (talk) 18:59, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
