Spaces in parenchyma > 1mm = Abnormal Emphysema causes dilation of air spaces by destruction of alveolar wall, leading to collapse of alveoli during expiration

  12. 12. Clinical presentationClinical presentation  The clinical features of emphysema should be distinguished from the signs and symptoms of chronic bronchitis. Patients with emphysema are hypocapnoeic and are often referred to as "pink puffers". This compares with the hypercapnoea and cyanosis of chronic bronchitis with patients referred to as "blue bloaters". In practice, features of these two syndromes coexist as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Patients typically report dyspnoea without significant sputum production. Signs of emphysema include:  tachypnoea  absence of cyanosis  pursed-lip breathing  chest hyperinflation  reduced breath sounds  hyper-resonant to percussion  cor pulmonale (late) Emphysema is best evaluated on CT, although indirect signs can be noticed on conventional radiography in a proportion of cases.
