Abstract:
It has been noted for a long time that among patients admitted to Vifilsstaðir Hospital have been many farmers with severe emphysema without any smoking history. This study was undertaken to explore the relationship between farming and smoking history and X-ray criteria for emphysema. Patients were selected for this study from admissions during the period 1975-1984 on the basis of chest x-rays which were judged by two of the authors (TA and HH) for signs of emphysema by the method described by Sutinen et al. Patients' charts were reviewed and history of farming and smoking recorded. Spirometric results were also recorded and total lung capacity measured as described by Harris et al. A total of 852 chest x-rays were examined and 228 patients were found to have x-ray criteria that indicated the presence of emphysema. The results show that 30,3% of patients were farmers or ex-farmers which is proportionally very high compared to the total population of Iceland. Beside that 58% of farmers and ex-farmers in the patients' group had a history of smoking as compared to 94% of non-farmers. The results indicate that farmers may be exposed to some environmental factor other than smoking that causes them to develop x-ray signs of emphysema.; Því hefur lengi verið veitt athygli að á Vífilsstaðaspítala hafa komið bændur með lungnaþembu á háu stigi án þess að hafa nokkurn tíma reykt. Alþekkt eru hinsvegar tengsl lungnaþembu og tóbaksreykinga. Tilgangur þessarar rannsóknar var að kanna fylgni röntgeneinkenna um lungnaþembu og tóbaksreykinga hjá fólki er stundað hefur búskap og bera saman við samskonar hóp sem ekki hefur unnið við búskap. Einnig var gerður samanburður á lungnastarfsemi þessara hópa.
