oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Normal pulmonary function in Botswana

Volume 38, Issue 6
  • ISSN : 0008-9176



Forced vital capacity, forced expiratory volume in one second and peak expiratory flow rate were measured in 125 adult Batswana who were without evidence of pulmonary disease. Regression co-efficients suitable for the calculation of normal values for these parameters are presented. Results are similar to those in other Negroid populations but lower than in Caucasian subjects.
