What exactly is respiratory excursion

    I was studying and came across "assessment of respiratory excursion" I assume that it is a deviation of some kind, but is it in breathing pattern, symmetry, or something else?

    Assessment of the movement of the chest during respiration; is expansion bilateral and symmetrical, is there restricted mobility? That sort of thing.
