Abstract

A survey of three indices of ventilatory capacity, forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC) and peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), was undertaken on 3490 Chinese inhabitants of Hong Kong. Nomograms have been constructed for the prediction of these three indices for subjects between the ages of 5 and 75 years.
