Epidemiology of Lung Disease in Older Persons.

Clin Geriatr Med. 2017 Nov;33(4):491-501

Authors: Vaz Fragoso CA

Abstract
Older persons frequently report respiratory risk factors and symptoms and have a high prevalence of symptomatic lung disease, most commonly obstructive airway disease, interstitial lung disease, and lung cancer. Notably, coexisting nonrespiratory risk factors are also prevalent and may misidentify or modify respiratory diagnoses and their clinical course.
