Exercise-induced-asthma or EIA is a condition similar to asthma. It is triggered by vigorous aerobic exercise and seems to affect only some individuals. It can occur during or after an exercise. Symptoms of EIA include shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and fast respiration. Preventive measures include avoiding conditions that can lead to EIA. Athletes predisposed to EIA can alter their training workout, use a bronchodilator, or a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication before training. Individuals susceptible to EIA and allergen-induced asthma need to be particularly careful about the environment they operate in.
