Pascale's current research work focuses on the role of (local and systemic) dehydration in the development of pulmonary dysfunctions (incl. exercise-induced bronchoconstriction).
Pascale has wide expertise in pulmonary function testing, exercise testing and bronchial provocation challenges (with exercise, eucapnic voluntary hyperpnea and hypertonic aerosols).
Pascale is affiliated to the Centre for Human Performance, Exercise and Rehabilitation (CHPER).
Key words: asthma and exercise; exercise-induced bronchoconstriction; dehydration and the lungs.
