The purpose of this paper is (1) to describe the diagnostic value of a quantitative and qualitative study of the pulmonary ventilation when employed as a test of respiratory function, (2) to report on the results of physiologically directed therapy in asthma and pulmonary emphysema with especial reference to the evaluation of this treatment by measurements of pulmonary function. For a more general review of the subject, especially the provocative concept of intrinsic lung function, the reader is referred to the recent paper of Miller and Rappaport.1 The preliminary remarks which we venture are based on our own interpretation of
