The prolonged period required for maturation of the respiratory system makes it vulnerable to environmental exposure. This study aimed to investigate the association between early-life factors and lung function in preschool children. Children aged 4 years, who were included in a prospective birth cohort, underwent lung function testing at baseline (n=535) and after bronchodilation (n=498) by forced oscillations. Information on symptoms and exposures was collected through half-yearly… CONTINUE READING
