    • Right heart haemodynamic values and respiratory function test parameters in chronic smokers 

      Gulbaran, M.; Cagatay, T.; Gurmen, T.; Cagatay, P. (‎2004)‎
      During coronary angiography in 24 chronic smokers with coronary heart disease, cardiac function measurements were taken and correlated with respiratory function tests. Fourteen patients had evidence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Cardiac output had a direct correlation with vital capacity, forced vital capacity [‎FVC]‎, forced expiratory volume in 1 s [‎FEV1]‎, and velocity at 25% of FVC [‎V[‎max]‎25]‎. Pulmonary artery resistance was inversely correlated with FEV1/FVC, while pulmonary artery oxygen saturation weakly correlated with FEV1 and ...
