It encompasses interactions with the cardiovascular process, sleep disordered respiring, etiological elements like occupational bio aerosol publicity or cigarette smoke similar concerns. Pulmonary functionality may well fall down in any respiration illness, the working example being all too usually breathing tract infections.

It should be noted that the proportions of patients with a restrictive and obstructive ventilatory pattern in this study were clearly different than those demonstrated in our present study, which is likely related to differences in the age of the groups studied. There is much less data on the consequences of adopting the GLI-2012 reference values in children as compared with adults. The results of a large study by Quanjer and Weiner (2014) which included 4,781 children, aged 6–18, have been published.

To our knowledge, there have been no previous reports evaluating the relationship between the use of the GLI-2012 reference values and lung function interpretation in Polish children. Hence, we undertook a study to compare spirometry results interpreted with the use of GLI-2012 and Polish-1998 reference values in a population of in Polish children.
