No. Hyperinflation is most commonly used to describe an xray appearance of the chest. It can mean that the lungs are bigger than ordinary due to trapped air in the chest. Hyperinflation may be seen in asthma, emphysema or even in normal patients who are thin. Most of the time it is an indication to get your lungs checked out by a healthcare provider.
