  • You can work it out with your height and age, google Spirometry calculator.

  • You also have just over 4% reversibility so a you don't have a diagnosis of asthma based on bronchodilator reversability. This is not stating you don't have asthma. You could very well see a decrease with a Methacoline challenge.

  • Thanks for this reply ck101

  • patient.info/doctor/spirome...

    shows the numbers. The Fev 1 is the amount blown in 1 second so when you took the inhaler it shows that your lungs blew more so were improved by the inhaler. This shows obstructive condition.

    I am Restrictive so my readings are different and showed no change after 6 salbutamol.

    Hope that helps.
