? What impact would a depressed diaphragm have on breathing? How could a depressed diaphragm lead to a "barrel

Answers:    You can sometimes see both a depressed diaphragm and a barrel chest in lung problems such as COPD. I think both things may be results of the disease process, but they do make breathing less efficient. I am not sure how a depressed diaphragm would lead to a barrel chest, but the second source below has something to say about the effects of a depressed (flattened) diaphragm.
