The Negative Influence of Cigarette Smoke on Passive Smokers-Deteriorated Pulmonary Function Tests
and Increased Urine Cotinine Levels.
Patients who were diagnosed to have either of bronchial asthma/ chronic obstructive Airway disease, Current/ past pulmonary tuberculosis, any occupational lung disease, or any severe disease interfering with performance of pulmonary function test
were excluded from the study.

in hypertensive (cases) and nonhypertensive (controls) females at Zewditu Memorial Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 2017
Generally, no significant difference between the mean pulmonary function test
values was noted for boys and girls (p>0.05), except that the boys of age 13 and 14 had higher mean values (p<0.05).
Criteria for inclusion in the study were: a) Diagnosis of juvenile scleroderma; b) Regular clinical follow-up at Pediatric Rheumatology Department, Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty; c) Performed Doppler echocardiography at Pediatric Cardiology Department; and d) Performed pulmonary function tests
at the Laboratory for pulmonary function tests
Post- operative pulmonary function tests
were carried out in both groups of patients in the post- operative ward on the morning of the first post operative day in the same position.
Studies in non-human primates have shown that vitamin C has the potential to decrease the effects of maternal smoking on newborn pulmonary function test
The presence of nodular opacities on Chest X-rays (P/A View) and restrictive pattern of pulmonary function tests
in collaboration with signs and symptoms were used as a diagnostic criterion for coal workers pneumoconiosis.
Exclusion criteria were smoking, anemia, alcoholism, use of anti-inflammatory or inhalable drugs, known respiratory and inflammatory diseases, congestive heart failure, and disability conditions precluding exercise or pulmonary function test

He covers pulmonary function tests
and asthma; asbestos; silica; other exposures or conditions identified in the causation of occupational lung disease; conditions attributed to occupational exposures; conditions and factors affecting occupational exposures; and causation criteria, assessment of disability, and work capacity.
When evaluated physiologically, pulmonary function tests
as well as other physiological tests are also crucial in order to measure the performance conditions of individuals (Astrand, 1986).
