COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
Air Capacity of the Lungs
What is regarded as a good lung full of air?
Lung health is frequently measured by pulmonary function testing. The "normal" range for these measurements can have a wide variation (80% to 120%) of the predicted value. Predicted values take into account age, gender, race, and height.
