By Peter Barnes (auth.), Primarius Dr. Hartmut Zwick (eds.)

The Austrian Pneumological Society held its 33th Workshop on "Clinical respiration body structure" at Graz, November 1 st -3rd, 1990. Bronchial hyperresponsiveness has been recognized approximately so long as bronchial asthma bronchia Ie itself. over the last twenty years whereas exploring the inflammatory nature of bronchial asthma bronchiale we've got realized much approximately measuring and editing this phenomenon. as a result useful relevance and because of the excessive competence of the authors we are hoping that the lectures and discussions we had at Graz will tell and revel in the reader. i need to precise my deep gratitude to the entire authors for supplying us with the manuscripts and graphs. eventually i'm in particular thankful to Mrs. H. Weber for her secreterial paintings and to Mrs. magazine. A. Lahrmann-Ramharter for correcting the written model of the speeches and getting ready a manuscript that used to be prepared for the click.

Sample text

Both symptoms and the degree of responsiveness vary from one time to another. It is therefore not surprising that these could have occurred in the past but are not present at the time of measurement of responsiveness. This would be one cause of symptoms with normal responsiveness. Some people do not recognize variable airway obstruction. This has been observed in a group of children who denied symptoms of asthma but who had Airway Hyperresponsiveness and Asthma 25 methacholine hyperresponsiveness.

The next point and the most important one: can we use bronchial provocation testing as a guideline for treatment and for confirming a remission in an asymptomatic patient? Patients and most doctors find symptoms the best guideline for treatment. Peak flow variability both within and between days can be helpful in patients with severe asthma and in those suspicious for over- and underestimation. Secondly the position and maximal response plateau of the dose-response-curve can be used for instance in patients suspicious of over- and underdiagnosis, more importantly in patients who consider themselves cured.
