Clinical asthma is estimated to occur in 4 to 7 percent of the US population, but respiratory symptoms are much more common.
The correlation between asthma, tests of bronchial hyperresponsiveness, and symptoms is imprecise and difficult to ascertain.
The prevalence of exercise-induced airflow obstruction is not well known in healthy adults.
We studied 100 consecutive US Air Force members to determine the prevalence of respiratory symptoms and the incidence of airflow obstruction after standardized free-run exercise.
Subjects who developed airflow obstruction with exercise underwent methacholine challenge.
