  1. Spirometric impairments in long-term insulators : relationships to duration of exposure, smoking, and radiographic abnormalities.

    Article - En anglais

    A study of 2,611 long-term asbestos insulators was well suited to provide information on (1) the prevalence of spirometric impairments in a large, well-defined population and (2) the effects of cigarette smoking, radiographic abnormalities, and duration from onset of exposure on pulmonary function.

    Prevalences are reported by a mutually exclusive classification of impairments (normal, restrictive, obstructive, small airways, and combined) as well as by abnormality of specific spirometric tests (FVC, FEV1/ FVC, and midexpiratory time).

    Only 3 percent of nonsmokers (NS) had obstruction and 6 percent a decreased FEV1/ FVC.
