Abstract
Summary of the current knowledge of abnormalities of pulmonary function associated with coal workers' pneumoconiosis. For convenience the pulmonary functional abnormalities have been grouped under the headings of ventilatory capacity, mechanics, diffusion, gas exchange, and pulmonary hemodynamics, and have been discussed in the light of whether they have been found in symptomatic, asymptomatic, or randomly chosen subjects. Certain aspects of pulmonary function in coal workers' pneumoconiosis remain unclear in the light of present knowledge. Further investigations that might prove worthwhile are indicated.
