Lung test closely linked to mortality

Wednesday July 27th, 2016

Poor fitness is a key factor in loss of life among middle-aged men, according to Swedish researchers.

It is the second biggest factor in early death among middle-aged men, after smoking, has been found to be low physical capacity.

The link between physical fitness and mortality was analysed using figures on 792 men from the Swedish "Study of Men Born in 1913". These men did an exercise test at 54 years of age (1967), and most of them also did a maximum-tolerated exercise test. Their oxygen uptake, or VO2 max, was measured using ergospirometry, a diagnostic procedure of the heart and lungs.

The study continued for 100 years after the men were born. Their causes of death were taken from a national death registry.
