Exercise for Asthma Patients. Little Risk, Big Rewards.
Disabella, Vincent; Sherman, Carl
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v26 n6 p75-76,79-82,84 Jun 1998
Asthma patients can benefit from 20 to 30 minutes of exercise at 60 to 85% of maximum heart rate several times a week. Improved fitness can reduce airway reactivity and medication use. The capacity to exercise requires good general control of asthma. Patients must learn to prevent exercise-induced bronchoconstriction by using inhaled medications and avoiding cold-weather exercise.
