Abstract: Exercise-induced asthma produces discomfort and anxiety and frequently limits normal activity in children. New knowledge about exercise-induced asthma can be used by nurses to identify undiagnosed children and to control the undesirable effects produced by exercise. Normal growth and development are fostered by an individualized program that promotes the child's involvement without unduly stimulating attacks. A review of the literature concerning exercise-induced asthma is presented along with a description of assessment, management, and teaching.
