Indirect Bronchoprovocation, Better than a Methacholine Challenge?




In this session focused on bronchoprovocation tests, the presenter will focus on indirect bronchoprovocation. Indirect bronchoprovocation testing is focused on producing reactions in the airway smooth muscle cells by stimulating airway inflammatory cells and demonstrates high specificity and relatively low sensitivity. This presentation will differentiate indirect bronchoprovocation from direct and explore the effectiveness of various types of indirect testing.

Successful completion of this course requires a score of 70% on the post-test.
