Default Breathing test

Does anybody in forum have the breathing test where you blow out less than 30?

Default Re: Breathing test

Yep, I was 27% when last tested in Dec 2013. The Spirometry test makes no allowance for how good or poor a PALS' lip seal is.
At this stage I'm more interested in my O2 sats - especially overnight levels - which are checked periodically.

Steve was getting good lip seal as they helped. He was having full pft every 6 weeks to 2 months.
