  • TLCpleth: total lung capacity (TLC) measured by plethysmography; VC: vital capacity; RV: residual volume; FRC: functional residual capacity; FVC: functional vital capacity; FEV1: forced expiratory volume in 1 s; FEF25–75: forced expiratory flow at 25–75% of FVC; FEFmax: maximal forced expiratory flow; FIFmax: maximum forced inspiratory flow; FEF50: forced expiratory flow at 50% of FVC; FIF50: forced inspiratory flow at 50% of FVC; MVV: maximum voluntary ventilation; DLCO: diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide; SB: single breath; Hb: haemoglobin; VA: alveolar volume. #: outside normal limits.
