BACKGROUND Spectral characteristics of breath sounds in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have not previously been compared, although the structural differences in these disorders might be reflected in breath sounds. METHODS Flow standardised inspiratory breath sounds in patients with COPD (n = 17) and stable asthma (n = 10) with significant airways obstruction and in control patients without any respiratory disorders (n = 11) were compared in terms of estimates of the… CONTINUE READING
