Book News Annotation:

Presents some of the research into why exercise induces asthma in some people while some asthmatics become Olympic medalists. Describes the clinical features of exercise-induced asthma and its relationship to other aspects of the asthmatic diathesis, the principles of respiratory heat exchange, and the current theories on pathogenesis. Also presents information on the limits and benefits of exercise testing as a means of diagnosing airway hyper-reactivity, the relationship of exercise to other types of broncho-provocations, treatment, the impact of air pollutants on lung function during exercise, the potential interactions of such agents with the asthmatic response, and experimental models. For clinicians and coaches. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
