    Abstract

    A sample of 204 male and 224 female healthy Jordanian children was selected to determine the normal ventilatory functions of this Arab population. Forced vital capacity (FVC), one-second forced expiratory volume (FEV1), and forced mid-expiratory flow rate (FMFR 25-75%) were determined with a dry bellows spirometer. Multiple linear regression formulae and correlation coefficients were computed for the group. Jordanian values for FVC and FEV1 were similar to those of Caucasians living in the Western hemisphere.
