Abstract

The main goals of this review are to help the reader to recognize the common symptoms and signs of exercise-induced asthma and the common objective tests used to confirm or rule out the diagnosis and to understand that different forms and intensities of exercise have different asthmagenicity. The review also aims to help the reader to recognize some of the theories of exercise-induced asthma's pathogenesis, to recognize management strategies (including medications), and to be able to identify medications placed on the 2008 prohibited list by the World Anti-Doping Agency and their therapeutic exemptions. It is also important to understand that respiratory symptoms associated with exercise are not necessarily asthma and that through safe participation in physical exercise, athletic asthmatics can excel in competitive sports.
