  • CI: confidence interval; Ppcw: pulmonary capillary wedge pressure; FEV1: forced expiratory volume in one second. The Hosmer–Lemeshow Goodness-of-Fit test yields a Chi-squared value of 14.8 (p = 0.06). #: defined as mean pulmonary artery pressure between 25–40 mmHg. n = 2,296. 1 kPa = 0.133 mmHg.
