Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) is a common problem in physically active persons and is most commonly found in persons who participate in endurance sports and sports that require high minute ventilation. EIB is defined as transient, reversible bronchoconstriction that happens during or after strenuous exercise, and can occur in persons with or without underlying asthma. Recent studies have shown that there is a strong corollary between exercise and clinical manifestations of OSA. This course discusses the disease state, prevalence, diagnostic techniques and treatment, and prevention modalities.
