Twelve subjects (11 males, 1 female) with complete spinal cord lesion (level of lesion ranging from C4 to T10), with a mean age of 23.5 years participated in pulmonary function testing (PFT). Inspiratory and expiratory flow measurements were made at 2-month intervals from 25 to 351 days post injury. The values were interpolated and extrapolated to common dates to facilitate comparison. The effect of time on pulmonary function was determined by a repeated measures ANOVA. Forced expiratory volume… CONTINUE READING
