Reversibilität (der Bronchialobstruktion)
Explanation:
Hope this will help:

Die Diagnose eines Asthmas kann gestellt werden, wenn neben der Anamnese episodischer Symptome eine zumindest partielle Reversibilität der
Bronchialobstruktion objektiv nachgewiesen werden kann. Für das Vorhandensein einer Reversibilität wird eine Zunahme des FEV1 um 15% oder absolut um mindestens 200 ml gefordert (11,9).

Does airway reversibility (improvement) occur after bronchodilator administration? For reversibility to be significant, you should see an improvement of 15% or more in the percent change column. Look at Betsy's postbronchodilator spirometry results, especially her FEV1. It shows 1.08 liters forcibly exhaled in the first second of the test. Without the bronchodilator, her FEV1 was 0.98 liters. This is only a 10% improvement, indicating only minimal airway reversibility.

Measuring Reversibility of Airflow Obstruction
To measure the degree of reversibility (typically increased in asthma) of airflow obstruction, perform spirometry before and 10 to 15 minutes after administering a bronchodilator by metered dose inhaler or jet nebuliser. beta2 agonists (e.g. salbutamol, terbutaline, etc.) are generally considered the benchmark bronchodilator.

Reversibilität der Atemwege.


Explanation:
Man hat wohl keine andere Wahl. "Umkehrbarkeit der Atemwege" sounds awful.
