    Roberto Torchio
    Fisiopatologia Respiratoria, Ospedale San Luigi Gonzaga, I 10043 Orbassano, Torino, Italy
    Chest 129:1330-6. 2006
    ..Although it is commonly assumed that pulmonary congestion and edema in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) promotes peripheral airway closure, closing capacity (CC) has not been measured in CHF patients...
  4. ncbi request reprint Orthopnea and tidal expiratory flow limitation in chronic heart failure
    Roberto Torchio
    Fisiopatologia Respiratoria, Ospedale San Luigi Gonzaga, Orbassano, Turin, Italy
    Chest 130:472-9. 2006
    ..Tidal expiratory flow limitation (FL) is common in patients with acute left heart failure and contributes significantly to orthopnea. Whether tidal FL exists in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) remains to be determined...
