S mall airways disease has long been recognised as being physiologically important in obstructive lung diseases, particularly in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [1]. The study of COSIO et al. [2], in which the severity of small airway inflammation and remodelling in smokers correlated with airway closure and ventilation maldistribution, as measured by single breath washout tests, is a landmark one because it linked small airways tests with pathology. Furthermore, these parameters… CONTINUE READING
