For the athlete, not only can pulmonary disorders cause significant alterations in training schedules or even prolonged stoppages, they can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases such as acute bronchitis, influenza, and pneumonia conspire to disrupt exercise regimens. Pneumothorax, vocal cord dysfunction, and exercise-induced asthma may present diagnostic and treatment challenges. Obstructive sleep apnea not only causes disruptive symptoms but can be associated with significant cardiovascular morbidity and even mortality. This article addresses the most common pulmonary conditions athletes face and provides a framework for the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.
