Pulmonary Function Test--need help with results
Does anyone know what the following values on a PFT mean? I have connective tissue disease (probably lupus, Behcet's disease). Any information would be great! Thanks...
FEF 25-75%: 2.74 actual, 79% pred
FEF max: 8.56 actual, 117% pred
IC (L): 2.96 actual, 124% pred
DL/VA: 4.37 actual, 78% pred
The reading says reduced FEV1/VC, Diffusion (DLCOcor) is normal.
I smoked approximately 6 months, less than 1 pack per month in my early 20's. I'm now 40.
