The methacholine bronchial challenge test (also known as bronchoprovocation test) is performed to evaluate how “reactive” or “responsive” your lungs are. It can help your doctor evaluate symptoms suggestive of asthma, such as cough, chest tightness and shortness of breath, and help diagnose whether or not you have asthma.
