Maximal expiratory flow-volume curves in Londoners aged 60 years and over.

Abstract

To obtain more accurate information about respiratory function in the elderly, we carried out spirometry and constructed maximum expiratory flow-volume curves in 136 volunteers over the age of 60 years (90 women, 46 men). Significant age related differences were found. Although vital capacity appeared well preserved in all groups, mid expiratory flow rates… (More)
