Some in vitro studies, as well as human studies, suggest that lower lung volumes secondary to obesity lead to a reduction in peripheral airway diameter, which over time causes smooth muscle dysfunction, and causes both airways obstruction and hyperresponsiveness. In addition, leptin has been suggested to be involved in the airway dysfunction associated with obesity through its proinflammatory properties and/or via a direct effect on airways smooth muscles [38]. However, the data addressing this question have been inconclusive so far and further studies are needed to understand the mechanism of increased airway resistance and responsiveness in obesity [37,39–45].

Nevertheless, the lower VO2 standardized to body size does not ameliorate the detrimental impact of morbid obesity on oxygen consumption. This respiratory inefficiency results in a limited ventilatory reserve, which predisposes these patients to respiratory failure in the setting of acute pulmonary or systemic illnesses [52,53]. VENTILATION/PERFUSION Ventilation in nonobese patients is greatest in dependent lung zones and decreases toward the upper zones; however, this distribution may be reversed in obesity.
