Changes in the pressure-volume curve can occur quite early in the evolution of COPD, before declines in FEV 1 occur or before there is obvious emphysema on conventional chest radiographs. Pressure-volume indices correlate with anatomic evidence of emphysema at surgery (29) or postmortem (30) and with ﬁndings on high resolution CT (31). Although the concept of high compliance in COPD is well established, it is The Lung in Transition from Health to Disease 7 important to recall that patients with obstructive lung disease are an inhomogeneous population and that a variety of changes in the pressure-volume relationship of the lung is seen in smokers (32).
It was postulated that as resistance in the peripheral airways increased, expiratory ﬂow would be increasingly determined by the resistance of small airways and the volume of isoﬂow breathing air or helium/oxygen would increase in proportion to the importance of peripheral airﬂow obstruction. Although preliminary studies did suggest the possible utility of this approach, it proved too variable a method for practical use (18,19). B. Tests Based on Ventilation Inhomogeneity Measurements of pressure-volume relationships of the lung were initially used to investigate dynamic lung function and were based on the observation that compliance measured during tidal breathing was decreased in obstructive lung disease (20).
