Bronchial hyperresponsiveness has been known nearly as long as asthma bronchia Ie itself. During the last two decades while exploring the inflammatory nature of asthma bronchiale we have learned a lot about measuring and modifying this phenomenon. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Bronchial hyperresponsiveness. Oxford: Blackwell Scientific, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book. Background: Bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) is often regarded as a 'hallmark' of asthma and bronchoprovocation testing is frequently performed to support a diagnosis of asthma. However, BHR is also found in a spectrum of other lung diseases and can be provoked by a variety of specific stimuli. Bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR), an abnormal increase in airflow limitation following the exposure to a stimulus, is an important pathophysiological characteristic of bronchial : Guy Joos.
