Prevalence of exercise induced bronchospasm in Kenyan school children: an urban-rural comparison. (1/234)

BACKGROUND: Higher rates of exercise induced bronchospasm (EIB) have been reported for urban than for rural African schoolchildren. The change from a traditional to a westernized lifestyle has been implicated. This study was undertaken to examine the impact of various features of urban living on the prevalence of EIB in Kenyan school children. METHODS: A total of 1226 children aged 8-17 years attending grade 4 at five randomly selected schools in Nairobi (urban) and five in Muranga district (rural) underwent an exercise challenge test. A respiratory health and home environment questionnaire was also administered to parents/guardians. This report is limited to 1071 children aged < or = 12 years. Prevalence rates of EIB for the two areas were compared and the differences analysed to model the respective contributions of personal characteristics, host and environmental factors implicated in childhood asthma. RESULTS: A fall in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) after exercise of > or = 10% occurred in 22.9% of urban children and 13.2% of rural children (OR 1.96, 95% CI 1.41 to 2.71). The OR decreased to 1.65 (95% CI 1.10 to 2.47) after accounting for age, sex, and host factors (a family history of asthma and breast feeding for less than six months), and to 1.21 (95% CI 0.69 to 2.11) after further adjustment for environmental factors (parental education, use of biomass fuel and kerosene for cooking, and exposure to motor vehicle fumes). CONCLUSIONS: The EIB rates in this study are higher than any other reported for African children, even using more rigorous criteria for EIB. The study findings support a view which is gaining increasing credence that the increase in prevalence of childhood asthma associated with urbanisation is the consequence of various harmful environmental exposures acting on increasingly susceptible populations.  (+info)

Evaluation of pulmonary resistance and maximal expiratory flow measurements during exercise in humans. (2/234)

To evaluate methods used to document changes in airway function during and after exercise, we studied nine subjects with exercise-induced asthma and five subjects without asthma. Airway function was assessed from measurements of pulmonary resistance (RL) and forced expiratory vital capacity maneuvers. In the asthmatic subjects, forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) fell 24 +/- 14% and RL increased 176 +/- 153% after exercise, whereas normal subjects experienced no change in airway function (RL -3 +/- 8% and FEV1 -4 +/- 5%). During exercise, there was a tendency for FEV1 to increase in the asthmatic subjects but not in the normal subjects. RL, however, showed a slight increase during exercise in both groups. Changes in lung volumes encountered during exercise were small and had no consistent effect on RL. The small increases in RL during exercise could be explained by the nonlinearity of the pressure-flow relationship and the increased tidal breathing flows associated with exercise. In the asthmatic subjects, a deep inspiration (DI) caused a small, significant, transient decrease in RL 15 min after exercise. There was no change in RL in response to DI during exercise in either asthmatic or nonasthmatic subjects. When percent changes in RL and FEV1 during and after exercise were compared, there was close agreement between the two measurements of change in airway function. In the groups of normal and mildly asthmatic subjects, we conclude that changes in lung volume and DIs had no influence on RL during exercise. Increases in tidal breathing flows had only minor influence on measurements of RL during exercise. Furthermore, changes in RL and in FEV1 produce equivalent indexes of the variations in airway function during and after exercise.  (+info)

Reduction of exercise-induced asthma in children by short, repeated warm ups. (3/234)

AIM: To study the effect of a warm up schedule on exercise-induced asthma in asthmatic children to enable them to engage in asthmogenic activities. METHOD: In the first study, peak flows during and after three short, repeated warm up schedules (SRWU 1, 2, and 3), identical in form but differing in intensity, were compared in 16 asthmatic children. In the second study the efficiency of the best of these SRWU schedules was tested on 30 young asthmatic children. Children performed on different days a 7 minute run alone (EX1) or the same run after an SRWU (EX2). RESULTS: The second study showed that for most children (24/30) the fall in peak flow after EX2 was less than that after EX1. The percentage fall in peak flow after EX2 was significantly correlated with the percentage change in peak flow induced by SRWU2 (r = 0.68). The children were divided into three subgroups according to the change in peak flow after SRWU2: (G1: increase in peak flow; G2: < 15% fall in peak flow; G3: > 15% fall in peak flow). Only the children in the G3 subgroup did not show any gain in peak flow after EX2 compared with EX1. CONCLUSION: The alteration in peak flow at the end of the SRWU period was a good predictor of the occurrence of bronchoconstriction after EX2. An SRWU reduced the decrease in peak flow for most of the children (24/30) in this series, thus reducing subsequent post-exercise deep bronchoconstriction.  (+info)

Bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage findings in cross-country skiers with and without "ski asthma". (4/234)

Bronchial hyperresponsiveness to methacholine with asthma-like symptoms ("ski asthma") is frequent in elite cross-country skiers. To further the understanding of "ski asthma", 10 nonasthmatic, nonatopic controls and 30 adolescent elite skiers were investigated by bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL). Nine skiers were atopic without allergy symptoms. Compared with controls, the macroscopic inflammatory index in the proximal airways in skiers was three-fold greater (median (interquartile range) 3.0 (2.0-5.0) versus 1.0 (0.8-2.3), p=0.008). In the BAL fluid, skiers had significantly greater total cell (p<0.05) and percentage lymphocyte (p<0.01) and mast cell counts (p<0.05). Neutrophil and eosinophil counts were not significantly different and eosinophil cationic protein was not detected. Tumour necrosis factor-alpha and myeloperoxidase were detected in 12 (40%) and six (20%) skiers, respectively. In skiers with ski asthma, the inflammatory index was greater than in nonasthmatic skiers. Lymphocyte subtypes and activation markers, and concentration of albumin, fibronectin and hyaluronan were not different from those in controls. Cross-country skiers have a minor to moderate degree of macroscopic inflammation in the proximal airways at bronchoscopy and a bronchoalveolar lavage fluid profile which differs in several respects from healthy controls. Skiers with ski asthma tend to show even higher degrees of bronchial inflammation.  (+info)

Airway obstruction during exercise and isocapnic hyperventilation in asthmatic subjects. (5/234)

We compared pulmonary mechanics measured during long-term exercise (LTX = 20 min) with long-term isocapnic hyperventilation (LTIH = 20 min) in the same asthmatic individuals (n = 6). Peak expiratory flow (PEF) and forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV(1)) decreased during LTX (-19.7 and -22.0%, respectively) and during LTIH (-6.66 and 10. 9%, respectively). In contrast, inspiratory pulmonary resistance (RL(I)) was elevated during LTX (57.6%) but not during LTIH (9.62%). As expected, airway function deteriorated post-LTX and post-LTIH (FEV(1) = -30.2 and -21.2%; RL(I) = 111.8 and 86.5%, respectively). We conclude that the degree of airway obstruction observed during LTX is of a greater magnitude than that observed during LTIH. Both modes of hyperpnea induced similar levels of airway obstruction in the posthyperpnea period. However, the greater airway obstruction during LTX suggests that a different process may be responsible for the changes in airway function during and after the two modes of hyperpnea. This finding raises questions about the equivalency of LTIH and LTX in the study of airway function during exercise-induced asthma.  (+info)

Surfactant function affected by airway inflammation and cooling: possible impact on exercise-induced asthma. (6/234)

Pulmonary surfactant maintains patency of narrow conducting airways. An inflammation, with a leakage of plasma proteins into the airway lumen, causes surfactant to lose some of this ability. Will a lowering of temperature aggravate the deteriorating effect of an inflammation? Calf lung surfactant extract (CLSE) with proteins added was studied with a capillary surfactometer (CS) at temperatures of 25-42 degrees C. BALB/c mice were infected with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Six days later the lungs were lavaged and the surfactant in the lavage fluid was studied with the CS at temperatures of 25-42 degrees C. Lavage fluid from allergen challenged asthmatics was examined for its content of surfactant inhibitors at reduced temperatures. It was shown that CLSE with proteins gradually lost its ability to maintain patency as the temperature was lowered. Lavage fluid from the RSV infected mice showed a similar dysfunction at low temperatures. Lavage fluid from the airways of human asthmatics, when challenged with antigen but not with saline, contained agents inhibiting surface activity, particularly at reduced temperatures. Airway inflammation causes surfactant to lose its ability to maintain patency, particularly as the temperature is reduced. That might be a reason for the increased airway resistance observed in asthma patients hyperventilating in cold weather.  (+info)

Specific and nonspecific obstructive lung disease in childhood: causes of changes in the prevalence of asthma. (7/234)

Reversible airway obstruction in childhood includes two major groups of patients: those with recurrent wheezing following bronchiolitis in early childhood, and those with allergic asthma, which represents an increasingly large proportion of cases through the school years. Over the last 40 years of the 20th century, allergic asthma has increased in many countries and in relation to several different allergens. Although this increase has differed in magnitude in different countries and also in the social groups most affected, it has had several features in common. The increase generally started between 1960 and 1970, has been progressive since then, and has continued into the 1990s without a defined peak. Among children 5-18 years of age, the increase has predominantly been among allergic individuals. Theories about the causes of the increase in asthma have focused on two scenarios: a) that changes in houses combined with increased time spent indoors have increased exposure to relevant allergens, or b) that changes in diet, antibiotic use, immunizations, and the pattern of infections in childhood have led to a change in immune responsiveness such that a larger section of the population makes T(H)2, rather than T(H)1 responses including IgE antibodies to inhalant allergens. There are, however, problems with each of these theories and, in particular, none of the proposed changes can explain the progressive nature of the increase over 40 years. The fact that the change in asthma has much in common with epidemic increase in diseases such as Type II diabetes or obesity suggests that similar factors could be involved. Several lines of evidence are reviewed that suggest that the decline in physical activity of children, particularly those living in poverty in the United States, could have contributed to the rise in asthma. The hypothesis would be that the progressive loss of a lung-specific protective effect against wheezing has allowed allergic children to develop symptomatic asthma. What is clear is that current theories do not provide either an adequate explanation of the increase or a practical approach to reversing the current trend.  (+info)

Nedocromil sodium in the treatment of exercise-induced asthma: a meta-analysis. (8/234)

Exercise-induced asthma (or bronchoconstriction) afflicts millions of people worldwide. While generally self-limiting, it can hinder performance and reduce activity levels, thus it is an important condition to diagnose and treat. The objective of this review was to assess the prophylactic effect of a single dose of nedocromil sodium on exercise-induced asthma. The Cochrane Airways Group trials register, the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, Current Contents, reference lists of relevant articles, review articles and textbooks were searched for randomized trials comparing a single dose of nedocromil to placebo to prevent exercise-induced asthma in people >6 yrs of age. Authors and the drug manufacturer were contacted for additional trials. Trial quality assessments and data extraction were conducted independently by two reviewers. Authors were contacted when possible. Twenty trials were included. All were rated as having good methodological quality. Nedocromil inhibited bronchoconstriction in all age groups. The pooled weighted mean difference for the maximum percentage fall in forced expiratory volume in one second was 15.6%, (95% confidence interval (95% CI): 13.2-18.1) and for the peak expiratory flow was 15.0% (95% CI: 8.3-21.6). These differences are both statistically and clinically significant. After nedocromil the time to recover normal lung function was <10 min compared to >30 min with placebo. Nedocromil had a greater effect on people with a fall in lung function of >30% from baseline. There were no significant adverse effects reported with this short-term use. In conclusion, Nedocromil taken before exercise appears to reduce the severity and duration of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. This effect appears to be more pronounced as severity increases.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction among British children by ethnicity has not been studied. METHODS: Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) was measured before and after an exercise challenge test using a cycle ergometer in 593 nine year olds from Scottish and inner city English schools. Logistic regression analysis was carried out to assess the association between changes in PEFR with exercise by reported asthma, ethnicity, and sex. RESULTS: The probability of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction was greater among the asthmatics than in either the children without asthma attacks or wheeze, or in the children with only wheeze (p , 0.01). Asian children were 3.6 times more likely to have exercise-induced bronchoconstriction than white inner city children, and also were more likely to have exercise-induced bronchoconstriction than those from the other ethnic groups (p , 0.01). CONCLUSION: Exercise challenge can assess the prevalence of asthma in the community and detect ...
Its been estimated that nine out of 10 chronic asthma sufferers, and four of 10 individuals with allergic rhinitis or atopic dermatitis, will feel the effects of exercise-induced asthma. Symptoms can include chest tightness, coughing, shortness of breath, and fatigue. There is hope for sufferers of this condition, however: Researchers at the University of Indiana have found that fish oil may reduce the severity of exercise-induced asthma in athletes. Subjects who consumed fish oil capsules daily for three weeks (approximately 5.4 grams of fish oil per day) showed improved postexercise pulmonary function and reduced symptoms of exercise-induced asthma compared to control subjects who received no fish oil supplementation. Good dietary sources of fish oil include herring, albacore tuna, salmon, mackerel, sardines and anchovies. And if you dont have the time (or palate) to fit fish into your regular diet, you can always get the benefits of fish oil from a regular supplement. Ask your chiropractor ...
Lets face it: exercising in the winter sucks. Running outside in freezing temperatures is a chore, the treadmill and stationary bike get boring in a hurry, and exiting the gym after a shower leaves you with frozen, crunchy hair.. But for the millions of people with exercise-induced asthma, those annoyances are the least of their problems. The cold, dry winter air is a major trigger that constricts their airways and makes breathing difficult. The end result: shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, a tight chest, and decreased endurance.. Exercise-induced asthma-or, more correctly, exercise-induced bronchospasm, or EIB-affects roughly 8 in 10 Americans with a diagnosis of asthma and 1 in 10 Americans in the general population, although these numbers may be higher, given that many people are not aware that they have the condition, especially if they have a milder case.. [RELATED1]. Contrary to what the name might suggest, exercise itself isnt the trigger for EIB. Rather, its the rapid ...
The aim of this study is to extend previous findings that nutritional supplementation or dietary modification can ameliorate exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. It has been shown in separate studies that fish oil and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) individually protect against EIB by improving pulmonary function and reducing airway inflammation.

To the Editors: The report by Kraus and colleagues (1) documenting the frequent occurrence of symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux in runners raises the hypothesis that this association might contribute to the pathophysiology of another exercise-related condition, exercise-induced asthma.. Exercise has long been recognized as a stimulus of airway obstruction in patients with asthma. Although several studies have shown the etiologic importance of exercise-induced airway heat and water loss to subsequent bronehoconstriction, these factors may not entirely explain the association. It has been shown that both the intensity and type of exercise may determine the severity of exercise-induced asthma (2). Among the ...

Vitamin C consumption may have a beneficial effect on respiratory symptoms encountered after exercise, according to a meta-analysis published in the journal BMJ Open by Dr Harri Hemila from the University of Helsinki. Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) is a temporary narrowing of the airway which can occur during or after exercise, resulting in a decline in forced expiratory volume (FEV) and affecting around 10% of the general population to about 50% in some fields of competitive athletics. Formerly, this condition was called exercise-induced asthma. Symptoms include coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Hemila identified three suitable trials (Schachter and Schlesinger, Cohen et al and Tecklenburg et al), through Medline and Scopus. The studies were all randomised, double blind and placebo controlled trials and involved a total of 40 participants who each consumed between 0.5g and 2 g of vitamin C before exercise according to the individual study. Despite the differences in age of ...

1. Arterial plasma histamine concentrations, forced expiratory volume in 1.0 s (FEV1.0) and peak expiratory flow rate were determined in nine patients with exercise-induced asthma and in five control subjects before and after 8 min of cycle-ergometer exercise.. 2. In the controls neither FEV1.0 nor peak expiratory flow rate fell by more than 5% in any individual during the 30 min postexercise period. The asthmatic patients all experienced a fall in FEV1.0 or peak expiratory flow rate, or both, of 15% or more in the period 5-20 min after completion of the exercise.. 3. There was no difference between the control subjects and the asthmatic patients in the plasma histamine response to exercise. In both groups there was an insignificant rise of about 40% during exercise, although the initial levels were higher in the asthmatic patients.. 4. The mean plasma histamine peak of the asthmatic patients preceded the mean maximal fall of FEV1.0 and peak expiratory flow rate by approximately 15 min. However, ...
Exercise-induced asthma, or E.I.A., occurs when the airways narrow as a result of exercise. The preferred term for this condition is exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB); exercise does not cause asthma, but is frequently an asthma trigger. It might be expected that people with E.I.B. would present with shortness of breath, and/or an elevated respiratory rate and wheezing, consistent with an asthma attack. However, many will present with decreased stamina, or difficulty in recovering from exertion compared to team members, or paroxysmal coughing from an irritable airway. Similarly, examination may reveal wheezing and prolonged expiratory phase, or may be quite normal. Consequently, a potential for under-diagnosis exists. Measurement of airflow, such as peak expiratory flow rates, which can be done inexpensively on the track or sideline, may prove helpful. While the potential triggering events for E.I.B. are well recognized, the underlying pathogenesis is poorly understood. It usually occurs ...
A 12-year-old boy was referred by his GP for evaluation of possible exercise-induced asthma. The boy was generally fit and active and was a keen sports player. He described the development of a lump or discomfort in his throat whenever he performed vigorous exercise and this forced him to stop running. He denied any cough or wheeze. He used a salbutamol inhaler before any sport. His mother stated that she never noticed any cough or wheeze but had noticed him stopping for breath in the middle of a match on a number of occasions.. He was given a clinical diagnosis of asthma at age 5. There was no family history of atopy. He had never smoked and didnt recall any excessive exposure to dusts, fumes, or moulds. His medications included a salbutamol inhaler, which he used most days pre-exercise, and a Beclazone (steroid) inhaler, two puffs twice-daily, which he felt had helped since it was started, a month before his presentation.. On examination, his resting oxygen saturations were 98 per cent. He ...

Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is one of many different causes for adolescents to experience dyspnoea during exercise. Objective exercise-testing with continuous video laryngoscopy is crucial for a correct diagnosis since it is difficult to differentiate EILO from other exercise related conditions in the airways only on the symptomatology. The main symptom in EILO is inspiratory stridor arising from an obstruction at the laryngeal level during ongoing exercise which quickly resolves after the exercise has stopped. EILO is often misdiagnosed as exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), which is obstruction in the peripheral airways that typically arises after cessation of exercise.. From a previous survey investigating self-reported exercise-induced dyspnoea in all 12-13-year-old adolescents in Uppsala (n=3,838, response rate 60.2%) a subset of 150 randomly selected adolescents (103 with dyspnoea and 47 controls) performed standardized treadmill exercise-tests for EIB and ...

Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction is a sudden narrowing of the airways when you exercise. Exercise can make symptoms worse in most people who have asthma.
Exercise-induced asthma (EIA), or more appropriately, exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), occurs in 4-20 % of the general population and 10-50 % of athletes. Diagnosis of EIB is still problematic. Currently, all methods used to diagnose EIB demonstrate only an indirect relationship between exercise and bronchial constriction. Evidence of bronchoconstriction is evident after exercise or is stimulated by a triggering factor (pharmocological provacation tests) and not by the exercise itself. Confirmation of bronchoconstriction by testing the forced expiratory volume per second (FEV1) also depends on the motivation of the examined person. The aim of this study was to determine bronchoconstriction at the moment of initiation. In order to develop an objective diagnosis of EIB, a pulmonary function test was applied during a high intensive physical endurance exertion. Therefore, a number of people (n=10) with a diagnosed „exercise-induced asthma and a control group (n=10) had to undergo a ...

Objective: to compare specificity and sensitivity of the metacholine challenge test (MCT) and exercise challenge test for the diagnosis of bronchial asthma in athletes.. Methods: 19 athletes (12 M/7 F, mean age 24.8±3.6 yrs) with respiratory symptoms were studied. Lung function with assessment of reversibility to salbutamol (n=19), MCT (n=19) and exercise test on a bicycle ergometer (n=17) were performed. The specificity and sensitivity of the MCT and exercise test were evaluated.. Results: Significant reversibility to salbutamol was found in 5 athletes. The fall in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) following the metacholine inhalation (,8 mg/ml) was more than 20% in 10 athletes. The MCT showed high specificity (100%), high sensitivity (100%) and negative predictive value (100%). At the moderate cut-off value (,4 mg/ml), the MCT had a more low sensitivity (80%) and negative predictive value (82%). Exercise challenge test was negative in all the athletes. The maximal fall in FEV1 ...
Exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) can be prevented in everyone. Exercise is just as important for people with asthma as it is for others. However, breathing relatively cold air triggers bronchospasm in most people with asthma. The airways become dry and they respond by narrowing (bronchospasm). Symptoms of cough, wheezing, chest tightness, and/or shortness of breath start about 5 minutes after the exercise stops and last for about 45 minutes (unless treated by using a rescue inhaler like albuterol). About 10% of athletes, even those who successfully compete in the Olympics, have EIB. The good news is that it can almost always be prevented. Strenuous exercise in cold air is the most potent EIB stimulus, such as cross-country skiing. Swimming rarely causes EIB since you are breathing warm and humid air while swimming. When walking in the winter cold, keep your nose open (by treating rhinitis, perhaps using nasal lavage) so that you can breathe through it. Breathing through your nose wa. ...

Asthma is one of the most common illnesses, affecting 13% of Canadians aged 5 to 19 years. Since the body uses the omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) found in fish to produce anti-inflammatory compounds, it is believed that fish oils can benefit asthma sufferers. In fact, studies show that in populations eating large amounts of fish, asthma rates are lower.. In a recent study, researchers from Indiana University found that fish oils could significantly reduce the severity of exercise-induced asthma (exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, or EIB). EIB occurs in 80 to 90% of people with asthma and in about 11% of people without asthma.. In this double-blind study, 10 elite athletes with EIB and 10 elite athletes without EIB received either fish oils or a placebo daily for three weeks.

Exercise induced bronchospasm (EIB), also known as exercise induced asthma (EIA) is a transient obstruction to airflow triggered by exertion.. It is now a well known identity, center of discussion in recent years, particularly in the athletes world. It is more common in asthmatic individuals (regardless of severity of disease), but it is also seen in otherwise healthy subjects, leading to the general consensus that the pathophysiology is different than asthma.. The concentration of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) in various airway & respiratory disorders, particularly asthma, has been deeply studied. Its use for noninvasive monitoring of asthma control (reflecting airway eosinophilic inflammation) is being closely examined and put into clinical practice. FeNO is significantly elevated in asthma. Elevated FeNO levels have also been noted in patients hospitalized with a COPD exacerbation, acidosis, rhinitis, bronchiectasis, active pulmonary sarcoidosis, active fibrosing alveolitis, and acute lung ...

Asthma is a long-term condition causing swelling and narrowing of the airways. The muscles around the airways tighten and extra mucus is produced. These changes make it more difficult to move air in and out of the lungs. Triggers are things that cause asthma flare-ups and worsen symptoms. Triggers may be dust, pollen, pets, infections, cold weather, smoke, air pollution, and exercise. Exercise is a common trigger for many people with asthma. For some, exercise, and other things, cause asthma symptoms. For others, asthma symptoms only happen with exercise or physical activity. In either case, the term to describe the condition is exercise-induced bronchoconstriction or EIB. (It used to be called exercise-induced asthma.) It means that exercise causes the airways or bronchi to narrow or constrict. Exercise is important for overall good health and for keeping the lungs and muscles involved in breathing strong. Your body needs exercise. Make sure you work with your healthcare provider to do it ...
