Lung Function: After instruction and a practice attempt, each subject performed a minimum of 3 forced expiratory maneuvers to provide estimates of forced vital capacity (FVC) and FEV1
. FVC is the maximum volume of air expired during forced expiration and is primarily an indicator of lung volume (Enright et al., 1991).
While "it's not some huge effect," London says, "at the borderline [of healthy lung function], losing 4 percent of your FEV1
could be a problem"
values (mean[+ or -]SDs) significantly improved in both the ASHMI group (64.9[+ or -]3.6 to 84.2[+ or -]5.0; p<0.001) and the prednisone group (65.2[+ or -]3.7 to 88.4[+ or -]5.4; p<0.001).

 concluded that there are no significant differences in FEV1
, FVC, and FEF 25-75% between the obese and non-obese adult females.
Forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1
) and forced vital capacity (FVC) were calculated.
where Y is the score of the questionnaire; x1 is smoking habit; x2 is the FVC value; x3 is the FEV1
value; x4 is the PEF value; x5 is exacerbation frequency; and a, b, c, d, e, and f are variable regression values.
In our study, we found that the values for FVC and FEV1
were significantly lower in recently diagnosed hypothyroid group (Group-1) as compared to treated hypothyroid group (Group-2) and euthyroid group (Group-3), but the same parameters were not significantly decreased between Group-2 and Group-3.

TUESDAY, July 9, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Use of a threshold of airflow obstruction of forced expiratory volume in one second:forced vital capacity (FEV1
:FVC) of 0.70 discriminates chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)-related hospitalization and mortality, according to a study published in the June 25 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
