This gives the results of an inquiry of the respiratory function in more than 8,000 patients with chronic tuberculosis of the lungs. In a high number of the cases was found a respiratory deficiency which nearly always depended on a hypoventtion. Very often this deficiency could not be compensated. The A A. describe the method which was adopted for the inquiry: comparison of the ventilation and the consumption of oxygen in atmospheres with different concentrations of O2 (21 %, 50%, 15 %) during work and rest combined with arterial oxymetric controls. The A. judges this method as reliable and particularly useful for patients which cannot stand fatiguing tests of work.
