The aim of this study was to investigate the diffusion lung capacity in patients with untreated hypertension. For this purpose, a total of 30 cases and 30 controls were included in the present study, which was based on several spirometry indicators in the analysis. The measurements were based on »single breath approach«. The results indicated that the two groups differed in several spirometry results, including vital capacity, maximum willing ventilation, but the overall lung diffusion capacity did not seem to be significantly different between cases and controls. The results suggest that although there is a strong link between respiratory and circulatory system, the overall lung diffusion capacity is not altered by the increased arterial pressure and hypertension. Furthermore, the results of this suggest the need for creation of the population-specific spirometry standards for the population of Herzegovina in order to provide more meaningful results of spirometry.
