The presence of airway obstruction results in characteristic disturbances in the function of the lungs. The physiology behind these processes is described. The changes which may be detected in the office and in the research laboratory are compared, and examples are presented to show how laboratory methods are used to supplement the information obtained clinically. Some new research methods for measuring the rate of blood-gas transfer in the lungs are described, together with an estimate of their potential application to the study of pulmonary insufficiency.
