Bad Spirometry results
I have bad spiromery (pulmonary)  results during a fit test of an employer. Test results were same even after repeating the test.

FVC           78%
FEV            73%
FEV1/FVC    93%
PEF [ L/Min]        100%
FEF 25-75 [L/s]            49%
FET [s]10.22
Result- Low vital capasity of lungs

All percentage figures are predictive.

I have clear chest Xray, clear ECG.  No any problems in berating. Oxygen level in blood remains 98%.  Do I have restrictive lung dieses? If not are there any chance of developing it? I did work in Sulphur plants and refineries.

My age is 44 Years, Hight 183 Cms, Weight 90 Kgs (180 Lbs), Asian body structure. I can walk up to 3 to four kilometers without any problems.


Thanks,
Tushar

Hi, I'm not really sure what is going on with your lungs, but considering your background in working with certain industries, there might very well be something there. Did you work with a lot of fine particulates. I do know that if you inhale fine powders or fibers or vapours, that over time you can do damage to your lungs. Some fine particulates can cause specific lungs diseases, such as silicosis (working with silica powders), or berylliosis (working with beryllium powders). This is something you would have to discuss with a pulmonary specialist. Considering that you are symptom free is a good sign. but it is good to followup if you have any concerns.
