Abstract:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide. The purpose of this thesis was to explore the role of hyperinflation in COPD by investigating its effect on mortality, and then having established that hyperinflation is a predictor of mortality in COPD, to then explore how it has an effect on the mechanics of the diaphragm at a sub-cellular level.
