A wealth of information on pulmonary function is currently available in NHLBI-sponsored, population-based studies. These data can be used to address critically important questions in pulmonary and cardiovascular disease research, but their potential cannot be realized without the active collaboration of pulmonary- and cardiovascular-disease researchers. Investigators interested in analyzing these data in collaboration with the parent study investigators are invited to contact these investigators directly. Results of analyses recommended in the workshop should be used to identify hypotheses for future efforts in collecting data on the epidemiology of pulmonary diseases and their relationship to cardiovascular disease.
