This is all valuable information but what I am looking for is a chart listing the age/sex and expected FEV1.


I know that according to the GOLD criterion a person has COPD if their actual to predicted FEV1 is <.7 then they have COPD.


I have a spirometer but I am looking for a simple chart that would list normal values.
