Abstract

The detection of collapsible airways, which may be a component of asthma and emphysema, has important therapeutic implications. We describea patient with significant airways collapse contributing to his airflow limitation and discuss how collapsible airways can be assessed by the volume difference between what exits the lung as determined by a spirometer and the volume compressed as measured by the plethysmograph. More simply, a large volume difference between the slow and forced vital capacity (SVC-FVC), easily obtained from spirometry, may be used asa surrogate index of airway collapse.
