The role of small airway disease in asthma.

Bjermer, Leif LU (2014) In Current Opinion in Pulmonary Medicine 20(1). p.23-30
Abstract
This review provides an update on the importance of the peripheral 'small' airways in asthma. As the small airways account for less than 10% of total airway resistance, thus having little impact on standard lung function measures such as forced expiratory volume and peak flow, they have been referred to as the 'silent zone'.
