Effect of disodium cromoglycate on exacerbations of asthma produced by hyperventilation

British Medical Journal
P S Clarke


The prophylactic inhalation of disodium cromoglycate lessens the exacerbations which occur in some asthmatic patients after voluntary hyperventilation. Reasons are given for considering this to be a possible mechanism for certain types of emotional exacerbation of the disease and for disodium cromoglycate giving sypmtomatic relief of asthma disproportionate to the improvement in routine measurements of ventilatory capacity. It is suggested that one clinical indication for giving disodium cromoglycate is to observe whether a fall in FEV(1) occurs after two minutes hyperventilation.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.


This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
