    Lung function parameters vary considerably with age and body size, so that, unlike many laboratory tests, the normal range of expected values must be individualized. For spirometry, only low values are considered to be abnormal, so the lower limit of normal (LLN) is taken to be equal to the 5th...

    Introduction Plethysmographic lung volumes are the gold standard for identifying restrictive lung defects (reduced TLC), and are useful for delineating obstructive defects (increased RV/TLC). Interpretation of these measurements may, however, be limited without appropriate reference equations....
