Abdominodiaphragmatic Breathing in Pulmonary Emphysema

BECKER, FOLKE M.D.; DENNY, WILLIS P. B.S.

It is pointed out that an increase in vital capacity is not an accurate or consistent criterion for the evaluation of abdominodiaphragmatic breathing. A gain in tolerance to activity offers a better yardstick.
