Title Influence of heavy physical work on lung function
Original title Der Einfluss schwerer k÷rperlicher Arbeit auf Messwerte der Lungenfunktion [in German]
Bibliographic information 1989, Vol.24, No.6, p.121-124. Illus. 21 ref.
Abstract Lung function was impaired in 38 healthy workers after they were engaged in the loading and unloading of airplanes; this decrease could not be demonstrated in a control population. Parameters measured were: forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), maximal expiratory flow.
