    Abstract: Clinical assessment of expiratory flow limitation (EFL) is important for diagnosing chronic pulmonary disease (COPD). Either EFL or dynamic hyperinflation (DH) in COPD has been understood based on wave speed theory, which is widely accepted as the standard concept. However, a theoretical perspective on the relationship between EFL and DH may requir... Show More
