BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To determine if arm span can be used as a measure of body length in developing prediction equations for lung function and to compare these equations with height-derived equations. METHODS Standing height and arm span were measured for all study subjects. Spirometry measurements included FVC, FEV(1), FEV(1)/FVC ratio, PEFR, FEF(25), FEF(50), FEF(75) and FEF(25-75). These data were used to develop prediction equations using multiple regression analysis based on age… CONTINUE READING
