Abstract
(English)
The criteria of the American Thoracic Society (ATS) for determining the end-point of the forced vital capacity (FVC) maneuver were compared with an algorithm employed by a computer system (Hewlett-Packard), which yields a later end-point. The 150 subjects tested were divided into five groups of 30 on the basis of the following spirometric diagnoses: (1) normal; (2) small airways' obstruction (SAO); (3) mild airways' obstruction (MAO); (4) severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); or (5) restrictive disease.
