Original Source: Does Long-Term Asbestos Exposure Cause an Obstructive Ventilation Pattern?

This review shows that long-term exposure to asbestos-containing dust leads not only to a reduction of lung volume as well as to limitations of forced expiratory flows, such as FEF (50) and FEF (75), but also to increased frequencies of FEV (1)/FVC, and elevated airway resistance. There is evidence for significant dose-response relationships and an increase in functional changes in parallel to an increase due to the latency period. Remarkably, even asbestos workers without radiologically detectable pleural...
