    In a sample of 77 men and 53 women aged 17-25 years, it has been shown that the duration of tracheal forced expiratory noises is significantly shorter in women. However, normalizing the duration of tracheal forced expiratory noises to height, body mass, and chest circumference eliminates this...

    Spirometry is the most useful and commonly available tests of pulmonary function. It is a physiological test that measures individual inhalation and exhalation volumes of air as a function of time. Pulmonologists and general-practice physicians commonly use spirometry in their offices in the...

    Background: Although reduced function of the respiratory system limits peak oxygen uptake in diseases affecting the lungs or airways, the healthy respiratory system is thought to have a spare capacity for oxygen transport and uptake, and is not considered a limiting factor for peak...
