PURPOSE: Both impulse oscillometry (IOS) and spirometry could reflect small airway disorders. We aimed to investigate the diagnostic value of IOS and spirometric small airway parameters (SAPs) and their correlation with radiology, disease severity and sputum bacteriology in mild-to-moderate bronchiectasis [Bronchiectasis Severity Index (BSI) <9], and to validate these findings in sensitivity analyses (mild bronchiectasis).
