Measuring Lung Function More Accurately and More Equitably
Harvard Medical School

Race-based assessments of lung function have historically assumed different levels of “normal” for different patient groups. New analysis shows that removing from lung function estimates would increase the number of Black patients diagnosed with serious disease.Greater estimated disease severity would change a patient’s diagnosis, disability compensation, eligibility for certain jobs.
