Bifurcation set and DI pseudo-dynamics, with modified parenchymal tethering nonlinearity (see text).
<p>By reducing the degree of nonlinear tethering, the DI and ASM fluidization combination fail completely in reversing airway closure. Even transient dilation is limited, with more than 85% of airways remaining in the closed state throughout.</p
