Measuring the severity of dynamic hyperinflation is a useful clinical approach to assess the effect of therapeutic interventions and explain their impact on exercise tolerance. Dynamic hyperinflation is typically quantified by the change in end expiratory lung volume from rest to the end of exercise. The result may be inconsistent with disease severity and does not clearly explain how exercise tolerance improves with therapy. Using a re-examination of selected studies, we suggest an operational… CONTINUE READING
