Abstract

The degree of correlation between the provocative doses of different stimuli reflects the different mechanisms of action. We found the closest correlations between the provocative doses of the pharmacological stimuli carbachol and histamine. The physical stimulus afforded by the ultrasonic mist of distilled water results in significantly airway narrowing in a smaller percentage of asthmatics
