Many Minnesotans with asthma participate in recreational and competitive sports. If asthma is undiagnosed or if it is poorly controlled, its symptoms can compromise health, impair athletic performance, and limit sports participation. It can even lead to death. Asthma-related deaths during sports participation, while not common, have occurred in Minnesota. Having asthma should not limit an athlete's ability to compete and win at the highest levels of competition. This article briefly reviews asthma and exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, discusses the impact of asthma on sports participation and outlines asthma management strategies for team physicians, coaches, and athletic trainers.
