PURPOSE: Impulse Oscillometry (IOS) is an effort independent tool to assess respiratory mechanics. However, there is little evidence to support the use of IOS as a screening tool for the early stages of pulmonary diseases that originate at the level of small airway. We aimed in this study to compare IOS and spirometry for the ability to detect airway dysfunction in participants who reported a history of bronchitis.
