This study examined the effect of the standing versus the sitting position on spirometric indices in 94 healthy non-obese adult subjects (41 men and 53 women) with the order of testing randomised. On average all the spirometric indices examined, except the peak expiratory flow rate, were higher in the standing compared to the sitting position although the change was only significant at the 5% level for FEV1 in women. The fall in FEV1 with the change in position was statistically related to the… CONTINUE READING
