Issue: 
Pages: 
287–90
Synopsis: 
Exercise-induced bronchospasm and asthma are often undiagnosed. Three per cent of the children that concluded a Free-Running-Asthma-Screening-Test were newly diagnosed cases of asthma. The outcome of the challenge was much more useful than a questionnaire on asthma symptoms.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of Free Running Asthma Screening Test (FRAST) as a method that may help the diagnosis of exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) in children from a rural area and to compare the results with their history of asthma.
