Use of Tests of Pulmonary Function to Measure Effects of Air Pollutants
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 21)
This conference is concerned with the measurement of risks. I would like to restrict my comments to the use of tests of pulmonary function to assess the risks associated with air pollutants.
