We hypothesize that exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) at the NCAA Division I collegiate level is over diagnosed, while poorly controlled asthma resulting in exercise-related symptoms in this same population may be under diagnosed, being erroneously attributed to EIB. This project will test individuals self-identified as having exercise induced bronchospasm or asthma, as well as gender-matched controls from the same sport, with eucapnic voluntary hyperventilation to assess for the presence of EIB or asthma. By making the correct diagnosis, improved health outcomes may be achieved and athletic performance may be enhanced.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in FEV1 following eucapnic voluntary hyperventilation [ Time Frame: 3-21 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Protection from fall in FEV1 following eucapnic voluntary hyperventilation by preadministration of albuterol [ Time Frame: 3-21 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 75
Study Start Date: February 2007

control athletes (ie, not currently being treated for either EIB or asthma by review of preparticipation physical forms or identified by the medical staff and/or not currently using asthma medications) from the same sport
