The association between pulmonary impairment and all-cause mortality was investigated among white subjects in a follow-up study of a large national cohort.
Pulmonary function was measured during the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANESI) (1971 to 1975); subsequent mortality information was obtained from the 1987 NHANES I Epidemiologic Follow-up Study (1982 to 1987).
Of 4,764 white sample persons, ages 25 to 74 years examined during NHANES I, 658 (13.8 percent) were identified as having pulmonary impairment defined as a FEV,/FVC <=69 percent.
