Abstract
Epidemiological study of effects of exposure to combustion products on respiratory function for 1,768 Boston firemen from 1970 to 1971, indicating that the majority of the firemen experience increased mucus production and general malaise after each exposure, and that pulmonary functions, forced expiratory volume, forced vital capacity, and ventilatory capacity, are related to some occupational factors, with cigarette smoking contributing to the problems. Objective cough is found to be a better predictor of lower pulmonary functions than history of cough or sputum observed.
