||Comparison of lung-function reference values
||Mar. 1999, Vol.72, No.2, p.69-83. Illus. 29 ref.
||Case histories and lung function values of 139 healthy subjects were recorded and differences of measured values minus predicted values as recommended by different authors were computed. Results indicate that the ERS values of FVC, FEV1, and FEV1%FVC mainly applied in Europe should be verified. The much better-evaluated formulas of other authors are recommended. Furthermore, the age range between 60 and 70 years should be extrapolated from these formulas until better epidemiological data on lung function are available. Topics: age-linked differences; asthma; comparative study; farmer's lung; lung diseases; medical supervision; one-second forced expiratory volume; pneumoconiosis; pneumotachography; pulmonary function; respiratory function tests; respiratory volume; spirometry; statistical evaluation; ventilatory capacity; vital capacity.
