A case-control study of exercise-induced airways narrowing (EIAN) and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke has been carried out in Mataro, Spain.
This study followed a prevalence study on EIAN performed on a random sample of 2,056 schoolchildren aged 9-14 years.
Cases were 136 children having a decrease in postexercise peak expiratory flow rate equal to or greater than 15% ; two controls per case, matched by sex, age, and classroom, were selected among children with a negative EIAN test.
A complete history of environmental tobacco smoke exposure was collected from the parents by means of a questionnaire.
Exposure from the mother was associated with EIAN in children (odds ratio=2.23,95% confidence interval 1.06-4.69) compared with those never exposed.
