In chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients, small-airway dysfunction (SAD) is considered a functional hallmark of disease. However, the exact role of SAD in the clinical presentation of COPD is not yet completely understood; moreover, it is not known whether SAD may have a relationship with the impact of disease.
