Correlation of anthropometry and simple tests of pulmonary function.
Arch Environ Health 1971 Jun; 22(6):672-676
Statistical analysis of results of standard tests of pulmonary function and of twenty-one anthropometric measurements of a population of 108 while male movie projectionists. Data on physical characteristics, forced vital capacity (FVC), and forced expiratory volume (FEV), determined by spirometric measurement are correlated. Analysis shows that age and standing height correlate most closely with tests of pulmonary function in this sample. Other anthropometric measurements are required for interethnic comparisons and prediction of pulmonary function.
