News briefs from the journal CHEST, April 2004

y-five ironworkers underwent additional respiratory screening using forced oscillation (FO). Results indicated that 77 percent of the ironworkers had one or more respiratory complaints, including cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and wheezing, and that early exposure to the WTC collapse significantly influenced the prevalence of cough. No statistical significance was found between respiratory symptoms and duration of exposure or smoking status. Researchers also found that spirometry underestimated respiratory symptoms as compared to FO. The study appears in the April issue of CHEST, the peer-reviewed journal of the American College of Chest Physicians.

LUNG DAMAGE FROM SECOND-HAND SMOKE INCREASES WITH EXPOSURE

The more environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) male adolescents are exposed to, the greater the amount of lung damage they may experience. In a study of 80 healthy adolescent males (30 nonsmokers, 29 passive smokers, and 21 smokers), Milan researchers found a significant correlation between the level of ETS exposure and the degree of lung function impairment. ETS caused the most damage in the lungs of smokers, followed by passive smokers. Furthermore, passive smokers with in utero exposure to ETS had significantly lower lung function scores than passive smokers whose mothers quit smoking while pregnant. These findings indicate that both current and in utero exposure to ETS are independently harmful. The study appears in the April issue of CHEST, the peer-reviewed journal of the American College of Chest Physicians.
