Get Tested for Exercise Induced Asthma!

Researchers at Trinity College, Dublin are looking for asthmatics to volunteer for a research study to investigate the effect of time of day on exercise-induced asthma. 

The study will consist of 3 visits to Trinity College Dublin.  On the first visit they  will perform a medical exam and explain the procedure to you.  Visits 2 and 3 will happen at 7am and 5pm, within a week of each other.

The Procedure

The test involves you breathing fast and deeply for 6 minutes to replicate the effects of exercise.  For this study they are looking for male asthmatics, aged 18-35, who have mild to moderate asthma.  Participants should be otherwise healthy and not had a severe asthma attack requiring hospitalisation in the prior 5 years. 

If you are interested please contact Dr Andrew Rowe on  arowe@tcd.ie for further information.
