Dyspnea: PFT can suggest but not prove "restriction" which is a characteristic of pulmonary fibrosis. Suggestive PFTs are followed up with lung volume studies and measurement of the diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO) which demonstrates the degree of impairment.

Check for VCD: LPR: laryngeal pharyngeal reflux - when gastric contents rise up into the throat, beyond just usual heartburn (GERD).

Check inspiratory flows; look for cut-offs in airflow when breathing in. ...Read more
