ABSTRACT
Analyzes longitudinal changes in pulmonary function in professional divers and their relation with cumulative diving exposure. Study methods and results; Conclusion that FVC, FEV1, maximal expiratory flow rates, and TlCO were significantly reduced in divers over the follow up period when compared with policemen; Suggestion that the contrasts between the groups indicate that diving has contributed to a reduction in lung function.
