  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...

    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
    Dept of Pulmonary Diseases and Paediatrics, Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    Eur Respir J 37:658-64. 2011

    ..2% and 0.4%, respectively; for a restrictive pattern, there were 1.0% disparate findings. Group- and sex-specific equations for estimating height from arm span and age to derive predicted values for spirometry are clinically useful. ..
