Arterial blood gases showed only mild hypoxaemia and hypercapnia and cor pulmonale was not a prominent clinical feature. A decrease in lung elastic recoil and a severely impaired diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide reflected the severe underlying emphysema. The typical patient with predominant bronchitis was described as overweight, if not obese, with plethoric facies and obvious cyanosis. Chronic cough and sputum production were considered an essential feature of the bronchitic subtype. The other prominent aspects of the bronchitis patient were severe hypoxaemia, an accompanying hypercapnia, and consequent to the deranged blood gases, cor pulmonale and polycythaemia.

Pulmonary mechanoreceptors respond to mechanical stimuli that are distributed throughout the respiratory system (airway and lung parenchyma). g. irritants such as dust or smoke) and mechanical stimuli that can cause broncho-constriction. Pulmonary stretch receptors in the airways respond to lung inflation. C-fibres (unmyelinated nerve endings) located in the alveolar wall and blood vessels are stimulated by interstitial congestion. The corresponding afferent pathways of these mechanoreceptors project to the brain via the vagal nerve.
