Default Re: rapid FVC decline?

Ted, what I meant was this study showed a range of 30 cmH2O in normal people not that the MIP was at 30 cmH2O. I don't recall the exact numbers but the "normal" range for MIPs in this study was like -60 to -90 cmH2O. What the study showed was that when folks reached a certain percentage their normal MIP, morbility could be predicted to a higher degree of accuracy then just using the FVC. Sorry for the confusion.
