Respiratory conditions are often neglected in the world of sports medicine. In this BMJ talk medicine podcast recorded at the famous Centre for Health & Human Performance in London, two world leaders enlighten us on respiratory conditions in sport.

He is an invited member of the American Thoracic Society expert committee for Exercise Induced Bronchoconstriction and is widely published in this field. Dr. John Dickinson is an Exercise Respiratory Physiologist with a specialist in assessing exercise respiratory symptoms in athletes. He has tested over 1,000 elite athletes from a range of sports including all Olympic and many professional sports, such as rugby and Premier League football.
