BACKGROUND The following two methods of inhalation challenge have been used to determine the airway responsiveness: the tidal-breathing method; and the dosimeter method. The objective of the study was to determine the influence of the challenge method on the response to adenosine 5'-monophosphate (AMP). METHODS This study measured airway responsiveness to AMP by dosimeter and tidal-breathing methods in 25 subjects with suspected asthma. The two AMP challenges were conducted in random order… CONTINUE READING
