(ii) How do mechanical constraints affect dyspnea? (iii) Do obstructive and restrictive lung diseases share some common underlying mechanisms? Qualitative dimensions of dyspnea, which allude to increased respiratory work/effort breathing, reflect a harmonious coupling between increased… CONTINUE READING
