The purpose of this study was to determine whether the forced oscillation technique is more sensitive than spirometry to detect lung function alterations in subjects with respiratory complaints. The input impedance of the respiratory system (between 2 and 24 Hz) and maximal expiratory flows and volumes were measured in 1,255 subjects referred for routine(More)
Following the occurrence of metal fume fever in some subjects after the installation of an electric furnace in a steel plant, a survey was undertaken to examine whether subjects exposed to fumes containing zinc oxide would exhibit a detectable impairment in ventilatory function, and whether a forced oscillation technique (FOT) was more suited for this(More)
