Our study contributes to the theme by showing that BME, although widely used in the evaluation of induced bronchoconstriction by exercise, does not substitute any other clinical parameter in the individual with asthmatic crisis.

Successive expiratory maneuvers were performed, and the maneuver with the highest value was registered. Besides, the devices used for EFP are less expensive and more readily available at this sector A measure of quality of life for clinical trials in chronic lung disease.
