sthma is a common airway disorder that is described by an elevated response of the trachea (large airway) and bronchii (smaller airways) to stimuli. It can include three main variables: airflow obstruction, airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and airway inflammation. In athletes with high ventilations and flow rates, exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) can occur. When the vessels located in your bronchial tree constrict in this manner, the result is a transient (short term) airway narrowing during or following exercise. www.sirc.ca
