Values are expressed as median (interquartile range); value < 0.05 as statistically significant; FEV1 = forced expiratory volume in 1 second; FVC = forced vital capacity; TLCOc = transfer factor of the lung for carbon monoxide; KCO = transfer coefficient; RV = residual volume; TLC = total lung capacity.
