OBJECTIVES To study the role of dust exposure on incidence of respiratory symptoms and decline of lung function in young coal miners. METHODS The loss of lung function (forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), forced expiratory flow (MEF), carbon monoxide transfer factor (TLCO)) with time and the incidence of respiratory symptoms in 909 Sardinian coal miners (followed up between 1983 and 1993 with seven separate surveys) has been compared with the past and… CONTINUE READING
