I just returned from OC instructor training. OC has not been found to trigger an asthma attack, although it may increase the possibility of an anxiety attack.  Bring your inhaler as a precaution.  OC is classified as an inflammatory, so you will feel the effects and the sensation of not being able to breathe, hence the anxiety.
