What is Exercise-Induced Asthma?

Exercise-induced asthma, also known as exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), is asthma that is triggered by vigorous or prolonged exercise. Most people with asthma have EIB. Exercise-induced asthma is more likely to happen when a person exercises in cold dry air or when there is a dramatic change in humidity or temperature.

Symptoms of Exercise-Induced Asthma

The following are common symptoms of exercise-induced asthma.Exercise-induced asthma usually occurs within the first 5-20 minutes of exercising or after the exercising has stopped.

  • Unusual fatigue when exercising
  • Shortness of breath when exercising
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing with asthma
  • Tightness in your chest
  • Fast or noisy breathing
  • Diagnosis and Treatment for Exercise-Induced Asthma

    An allergist can diagnose exercise-induced asthma based on the symptoms and patient medical history. Other diagnostic procedures for exercise-induced asthma may include any of the following:
  • Allergy testing
  • The treatment for asthma will be determined by your doctor and usually includes control, prevention and rescue medications for management of asthma symptoms and attacks along with the creation of a customized asthma action plan.

    Prevention for Exercise-Induced Asthma

    Prevention medications such as short-acting beta2-agonist should be taken 10-15 minutes before exercising to prevent exercise-induced asthma attacks. Other prevention methods include proper warm up before exercising, avoid allergens when exercising, learning to breathe through the nose and keeping the mouth and nose covered when exercising in cold weather.
