Abstract
Epidemiological study of chronic non-specific respiratory disease in 1,768 Boston firemen through simple pulmonary function, forced vital capacity, and 1 second forced expiratory volume tests, and a standardized respiratory system questionnaire. Experienced firemen are found to have a higher incidence than new firemen of the same age group, with significantly higher rates for firemen who smoke or have smoked. The incidence of respiratory disease is related both to occupational exposure and to smoking.
