Hi I had a pulmonary function test at a hospital and was wondering what the following statements mean. I'll post the "Findings" and "Impression"
FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC ratio are normal. FEF 25/75 is moderately decreased. Slow vital capacity is normal. There is no significant improvement in FEV1 or FVC following bronchodilator.
1. Minimal obstructive airways disease characterized by moderate small airways dysfunction. FEV1 and FVC are both normal.
2. No significant broncho-reversibility is present.
3. Normal slow vital capacity.
I get that most of it looks normal but what's that about "disease"? It doesn't make sense to me. If any doctor could answer this for me I would appreciate it. Thanks.
