Exercise-induced dehydration alters pulmonary function but does not modify airway responsiveness to dry air in athletes with mild asthma (2017)
Journal Article
Simpson, A. J., Romer, L. M., & Kippelen, P. (2017). Exercise-induced dehydration alters pulmonary function but does not modify airway responsiveness to dry air in athletes with mild asthma. Journal of Applied Physiology, 122(5), (1329-1335). doi:10.1152/japplphysiol.01114.2016. ISSN 8750-7587

Local airway water loss is the main physiological trigger for exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB). Our aim was to investigate the effects of whole body water loss on airway responsiveness and pulmonary function in athletes with mild asthma and... Read More

Perspectives of patients and healthcare professionals on mHealth for asthma self-management (2017)
Journal Article
Simpson, A. J., Honkoop, P. J., Kennington, E., Snoeck-Stroband, J., Smith, I., East, J., …Fowler, S. (2017). Perspectives of patients and healthcare professionals on mHealth for asthma self-management. The European respiratory journal, 49(5), https://doi.org/10.1183/13993003.01966-2016

Copyright ©ERS 2017. Mobile healthcare (mHealth) has the potential to revolutionise the self-management of long-term medical conditions such as asthma. A user-centred design is integral if mHealth is to be embraced by patients and healthcare professi... Read More
