  1. doi Age- and height-based prediction bias in spirometry reference equations
    Philip H Quanjer
    Dept of Pulmonary Diseases and Dept of Paediatrics, Erasmus Medical Centre, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    Eur Respir J 40:190-7. 2012
    ..Using a single spirometry equation applicable across all ages and populations reduces prediction bias. Measuring and recording age and height accurately are also essential if bias is to be minimised...
  2. doi Cross-sectional and longitudinal spirometry in children and adolescents: interpretative strategies
    Philip H Quanjer
    Sophia Children s Hospital, Erasmus MC, University Medical Centre Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    Am J Respir Crit Care Med 178:1262-70. 2008
    ..Single and serial spirometric data are commonly compared with predicted values to assess pulmonary function and normal lung growth...

    P H Quanjer
    Depts of Pulmonary Diseases and Paediatrics, Erasmus Medical Centre, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    Eur Respir J 36:1391-9. 2010
    ..Prediction equations for children and adolescents should take into account sex, height, age, ethnic group, and, ideally, also SH...
  4. doi Influence of secular trends and sample size on reference equations for lung function tests
    P H Quanjer
    Dept of Pulmonary Diseases and Paediatrics, Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    Eur Respir J 37:658-64. 2011
    ..Use of local controls to validate reference equations will rarely be practical due to the numbers required. Reference equations derived from large or collated datasets are recommended...

    Eur Respir J 40:1324-43. 2012
    ..They can be applied globally to different ethnic groups. Additional data from the Indian subcontinent and Arabic, Polynesian and Latin American countries, as well as Africa will further improve these equations in the future...
