Igloolik has nearly doubled from 1970 to 1990, and more of the population have survived to old age. These changes are reflected in the subject samples whose lung function was tested in 1970, 1980, and 1990. All subjects were volunteers, living in Igloolik, and tested in accordance with a protocol

Abstract
Respiratory health, smoking habits, forced vital capacity, one-second forced expiratory volume, and maximal mid-expiratory flow rate have been examined in all willing Inuit aged 9-79 years living in the Arctic community of Igloolik, NWT, Canada (69 degrees N, 81 degrees W) in 1969/70 (1970), 1979/80 (1980), and 1989/90 (1990). The sample comprises about 70% of the children and more than 50% of the adults; in the more recent survey, 219 males and 160 females. Almost all of the adults and many of the children smoke, the current average consumption in those over 17 years of age being 13 plus/minus 7 cigarettes/day in the men and 11 plus/minus 7 cigarettes/day in the women. About a third of the community have radiographically visible chest disease, but with a few exceptions this has had only a minor effect upon pulmonary function. During adolescence, long volumes increase as a logarithmic function of stature; statistically fitted curves predict only minor inter-survey differences for a given height. In adults, multiple regressions on age and height show an increase of cross-sectional aging coefficients from 1970 to 1990, with parallel trends in longitudinal data. Radiographic chest disease and domestic air pollution do not seem the sole cause of the secular trend to accelerated aging. Other possible factors include greater pack-years of cigarette exposure, nonspecific respiratory disease, increased inspiration of cold air, altered chest mechanics due to operation of high-speed snowmobiles, and more general consequences of the secular trend to a loss of physical fitness.

Abstract
A rapidly developing outbreak of pneumonia in young infants was documented in two isolated Artic populations in May 1972. These were studied virologically, serologically and clinically. In addition to the two stricken communities, one apparently unaffected with serious clinical illness and a fourth, in which are located the major hospital and airport in the eastern Arctic, were also studied. One hundred and twenty-four patients were studied serologically and 81 respiratory and other specimens were obtained for virus isolation from 40 of these patients. Clinical records were kept of the outbreak in each area and a detailed questionnaire was filled out for 140 children and their families. Respiratory syncytial irus (RSV) was cultured from eight ill children. Electron microscopy provided the first evidence of RSV infection. A seroconversion rate of approximately 50% was seen in both affected communities as well as in the clinically unaffected one. The epidemic in the first two communities was characterized by severe pneumonia and frequent hospitalization but no cases of bronchiolitis were seen. No evidence for other causes of this outbreak could be obtained by testing for antibodies to influenza A and B, parainfluenza 1, 2 and 3, adenovirus and herpes simplex viruses. Unusual features of this epidemic of RSV infection include the high attack rate, severe morbidity, illness manifest almost exclusively as pneumonia rather than bronchiolitis and the difference between the expression of disease in different communities. Historical data and clinical observations were inadequate to explain these unusual features.
