Hi all. My PALS just had his first pulmonary function test (attached). I am curious how to interpret it. His neuro gave him a quick call and said he qualifies for NI ventilation and that his number was 38%. While I am sure they will explain it at our next appointment in a couple months, trying to understand which number she was reading and what I should look at. My husband doesn't appear to have any major breathing issues yet - we are three years in from diagnosis, although I like to tell him he sounds much louder to me. I am also worried maybe he isn't sleeping as soundly as he needs to and just doesn't recognize the deficiency. Anyways, thoughts on which numbers are key on this test and what they might mean? She said he has good output bad input.
