BMI: body mass index; BSA: body surface area; FEV

_{1}: forced expiratory volume in one second; FVC: forced vital capacity; PEF: peak expiratory flow; FEF_{25–75}: mean forced expiratory flow between 25 and 75% FVC.^{#}: calculated at weight (kg) divided by height (m);^{¶}: calculated as 0.0097×(height in cm+weight in kg)−0.545. *: predicted value significantly different than measured value (p<0.05). Pulmonary function values in males calculated as a percentage of normal values predicted for males and females of same height and age from Hankinson*et al.*31.
