    Methacholine $ \dot{\rm V} $ challenge testing (MCT) is widely used to assess airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR). Traditionally, a 20% or greater decline in forced expiratory volume in 1 (FEV1) is the primary outcome measure. We examined whether the inclusion of wheeze detection as outcome measure...
