Abstract
The uniformity of distribution of pulmonary ventilation in humans was found to be acutely and adversely affected by cigarette smoke inhaled within an approximate 0.5 hour period prior to the test in 20 percent of pneumoconiotic coal miners and 5 young normal subjects who smoked within 1 hour of the test. The evidence produced provided additional support for the contention that cigarette smoking should be prohibited prior to any series of pulmonary function tests.
